Brief description Indigenous women are twice as likely to have low birth weight babies compared to non-Indigenous women and 2.5 times as likely to develop preeclampsia, possibly because they have a much greater incidence of chronic kidney disease, predisposing them to these pregnancy outcomes. We have found a new, sensitive marker of early stage renal dysfunction in pregnancy that could be useful for detecting early stage renal disease and which is indicative of an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcome.
