The aim of this study was to evaluate neonatal outcomes of PB in the postpartum period, depending on perinatal risk (PR) factors, terms, and mode of delivery. Regardless of the mode of delivery, more than 60% of the infants died in the early neonatal period. The main diseases in the early neonatal period were asphyxia, respiratory distress syndrome and intraventricular hemorrhage.
