Abstract: Objective: To investigate CIMT and its relationship with maternal demographic characteristics in healthy pregnancy. Methods: CIMT was measured using an au. Results: CIMT showed no relationship with gestational age (rho=−0.124, p=0.335), parity (Z=−0.055, p=0.960) and MAP (rho=0.110, p=0.393). A relationship was found between CIMT and maternal age (rho=0.277, p=0.028), booking BMI (rho=0.278, p=0.027), and BMI at time of study (rho=0.287, p=0.023). CIMT ranged from 0.30-0.80mm, the 97.5th percentile was 0.63 mm. Conclusion: In healthy pregnancy, we reported CIMT was related to BMI and maternal age but not parity or gestational age.
