your pregnancy – pregnancy complications: symptoms
By far the majority of pregnant women progress through their pregnancies without problems. Though some, for all sorts of reasons do not. Complications can arise at any stage of pregnancy and pose different grades of risk to the health and well-being of a mother and her baby. If managed carefully and well, these risks can often be reduced. Some of the more common pregnancy complications will be included here, but this is not intended to be an exhaustive list. If you are particularly concerned, speak with your midwife or doctor. Feeling anxious about developing a pregnancy complication will not make you more vulnerable to experiencing one. If you have had a complication with an earlier pregnancy, have a specific family history or a pre-existing medical condition then you may be more likely to develop a pregnancy complication.
