The objective of this study is to evaluate and compare the hematological and biochemical profiles of pregnant women at birth with those of their newborns. To do this, during 17 days, 33 pregnant women from giving birth in maternity of South Abobo General Hospital, were recruited, on criteria for inclusion and non-inclusion. Blood samples of women at childbirth, and in the umbilical cord were performed. Blood samples are obtained with two types of tubes. Some contain EDTA was used for the determination hematological parameters and the others, without anticoagulant, for biochemical parameters.

The results showed a high anemia prevalence (42%) in mothers and (55%) in newborns. this anemia has been in the forms of hypochromic normocytic anemia (HNA), hypochromic microcytic anemia (HmA) and normochromic anemia (NNA), hypochromic macrocytic anemia (HMA) and normochromic microcytic anemia (NmA), observed in all study population. For biochemical parameters, hypercholesterolemia has been observed at childbirth. Moreover, mean values of some biochemical parameters were higher in newborns than in their mothers.

In conclusion, the study reported high proportions of anemia most high among newborns. The types of anemia only in the newborns and significant changes in blood lipids and other biochemical parameters both in the group of subjects.
