After selecting eligible studies, both reviewers (ADG and DD) independently performed data extraction of relevant information. Data were extracted regarding author, year of publication, study location, site (hospital- or community-based or data-based), study type, trimester, whether prepregnancy thyroid disorder patients were excluded, sample size, diagnostic criteria, and prevalence of hypothyroidism (overall, subclinical, and overt). We contacted authors of included articles for additional data whenever required. Inconsistencies in data were resolved by either consensus or seeking further information from the authors of the study. In case of disagreement between two reviewers, arbitration was done by the third reviewer (VY).
