Pregnancy and Fetal Complications

You may develop complications during your pregnancy that affect you and/or your baby. These include:

• Anemia (lower than normal number of health red blood cells)
• Depression (extreme sadness during pregnancy)
• Ectopic pregnancy (the fertilized egg implants outside of the uterus)
• Fetal problems like poor growth
• Problems with the placenta
• Gestational diabetes
• High blood pressure that starts after your 20th week (preeclampsia/toxemia)
• Severe and persistent nausea and vomiting
• Miscarriage from natural causes
• Going into labor before your 37th week (preterm labor)

Our OB/GYNs will closely monitor you and your baby throughout your pregnancy and may discuss prenatal tests and procedures with you.
