Babies born small for gestational age to mothers with preeclampsia were at greater risk of developing cerebral palsy whether they were full-term or premature, a Norwegian study showed. However, very preterm babies who were not small for their gestational age born to mothers with preeclampsia were less likely to have cerebral palsy compared with peers born to women without the complication, researchers said. The findings were published in journal BMJ.
