Abstract : Threatened miscarriage is the most common complication of pregnancy; it associated with an increased incidence of adverse pregnancy outcome. This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of threatened miscarriage in the first trimester on the maternal and neonatal outcome. A prospective follow-upcontrolled design performed on 100 pregnant women who attend the antenatal clinic at Wadi Addwaser General Hospital, with the inclusion criteria fulfilled. A purposive sample used, and the interviewing questionnaire was designed by the researcher to collect the data. The risk pregnancy outcomes were significantly higher in the studied group compared to the control one. A woman with threatened miscarriage had a significantly higher rate of unexplained antepartum hemorrhage, Placenta Previae, pregnancy-induced hypertension, premature rupture of membrane and pre-term delivery < 37 weeks (16%, 22%, 14%, 26%, and 44%, respectively). They are more likely to experience low hemoglobin level during the time of abortion and at the time of delivery (10.41±1.17 and 10.09±1.26, respectively). Fetal small for gestation, low birth weight, lower Apgar score at first and fifth minutes, and neonatal intensive care unit admission were significantly higher in the miscarriage group compared to control one. Pregnancy with threatened miscarriage associated with an increased risk of maternal and neonatal complications. So, special attention is needed during antenatal care for women with a threatened miscarriage to minimize these complications, and hemoglobin measurement should do for these women with inexpensive and accurate methods
