Exclusion criteria: 1. Women with fetuses with major congenital malformation diagnosed by a prenatal ultrasonogram. Method: Doppler examinations were performed with a LOGIQ 500 duplex doppler scanner (GE medical systems) using a 2.5 MHz tranducer. Studies were done with the patient in semi-recumbent position and the fetus in a quiet resting and apnoeic state. This was determined both by direct observation using real-time ultrasound and by the absence of doppler waveform patterns typical of
