Pregnant women with more than 30 years and those who had one or more deliveries predominated, a third part was classified as overweight and a fourth of them had excessive weight gain. Dystocic deliveries were about the 42.1% and the 19.9% primitive cesareans, low birth weight was present in 8.3% and macrosomic in 14.69%.
