The grande multipara

By Tancred Busuttil


The grande multipara is a woman who has given birth seven or more times. This is a survey consisting of a study of all the para 7 or over delivered at St. Luke`s Hospital, Malta, during the two-year period 1963-1964. A series of 638 grande multipara is studied. The findings show a higher rate than average for certain obstetrical abnormalities, such as toxemia, abruptio placentae, still-birth and malpresentations. Notwithstanding, the maternal mortality is not affected.peer-reviewe
