A questionnaire on medical complications in pregnancy, labor and delivery was given to 195 families of gifted children. 156 (80%) answered the questionnaire. The incidence of medical disorders in this group did not differ from the accepted incidence in a normal obstetric population. There was a sex ratio of 71.5% boys and 28.5% girls, and a higher probability of another gifted child in these families.
