Pregnancy 101 | Serious Pregnancy Complications
lumalove.com As a midwife I have also specialized for numerous years as a high-risk prenatal specialist. So I have seen both in the outpatient setting and within the labor and delivery setting huge complications of pregnancy where a normal healthy pregnancy turns into a disaster.
According to the most recent statistics in 2004, 13 women died out of every 100,000 women that gave birth in the United States. So for every 100,000 women that gave birth, 13 women lost their lives. That is an awful lot of women, and if you look at the babies, statistics are showing that every 150 birth of a baby born in the United States, the baby is born dead. So with pregnancy, it can go wrong.
Pregnancy can sometimes become a huge medical complication where you can lose your life. I am not here to terrify the life out of you, but I am saying that if your practitioner classed you as a high-risk pregnancy, please follow every single bit of advice that your provider has given to you. The more educated you are, the more knowledge you have inside yourself about what to expect and about the serious medical complication that you might be dealing with, then the better chance you have of being fully confident when to call your doctor in your pregnancy as to what you should do.
Now, you know pregnancy has a lot of minor complications, but I’m not talking about minor complications. I’m talking about major complications of pregnancy, which range from severe high blood pressure that’s totally out of control and you get preeclampsia, which means that your kidneys are now involved. Protein ends up in your urine and you begin to sweat a lot.
Other major pregnancy complications include the likes of a hemorrhage or even your womb rupturing on you, which means it has just exploded. Many things can very seriously go wrong in pregnancy as far as you are concerned and the same goes for the baby.
The baby can be delivered early. The baby may not grow correctly; your baby might be abnormal. You might have too much fluid; you might not have enough fluid. It could certainly end up showing that the baby is having intrauterine growth retardation, which means that the baby is not growing on time, that all its organs, brain, its whole body is growing very slowly. This is a very serious complication for your baby because we really do not know how your pregnancy is going to end up.
I say to you, if you have been told you have a complication in pregnancy, please take it easy. If your doctor told you to stop working it means stop working, stop worrying, try to connect and bond, and use this precious time to de-stress and constantly reassure your baby that you know things are not going right, but at the same time the baby is wanted and loved and you are going to get through this together.
