Abstract

Delivery complications of schizophrenic women were compared to control groups in two studies. Although in both studies the schizophrenic women had more complications than normal controls, and more than personality disordered women in the second study, in both studies a neurotic depressive group of women had a comparable number. In both studies chronicity of mental disorder was more strongly related to number of delivery complications than any particular psychiatric diagnosis.
