Focusing on the group of mothers age 35 and over, this new Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) analysis provides comprehensive Canadian information both on mothers' and newborns' health outcomes that are associated with mothers' age and on the cost drivers of in-hospital care.
Pooling three years of hospital data from 2006-2007 through 2008-2009, linking birth records and mothers' hospital records for all live births, the report explores how age is associated with the following: risks of pregnancy and labour complications; medical or surgical assistance during labour to ensure a safe delivery; and adverse birth outcomes and birth defects. Where data is available, these outcomes are examined for singleton births based on whether it was a women's first or subsequent live birth.

The price you pay for an item depends on the type of organization to which you belong. Until you sign in, we do not know which price applies to you.
No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.
If you want the downloadable version of an available publication and the price is free, as is often the case, you can simply download the file (usually a PDF) by clicking the Download link.
