Folic Acid, Dietary Patterns and Perinatal Health: The Generation R Study
The perinatal mortality rate in The Netherlands is among the highest in the European Union, with one in 100 babies dying during pregnancy, at birth or shortly thereafter. Low birth weight, preterm birth, congenital anomalies, perinatal asphyxia, and pre-eclampsia are major contributors to perinatal mortality. Moreover, pre-eclampsia is not only a major driver for perinatal mortality but plays a significant role in maternal mortality as well.
