Some complications might include gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, anemia, hypothyroidism, and other maternal risks. There may also be fetal and placental concerns with placenta abruption, accrete, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or other factors that make for high-risk pregnancies.
Benign tumors that arise from overgrowth of smooth muscle and connective tissue in the uterus. There may be a genetic predisposition to leiomyoma growth. Treated with myomectomy, an operation to remove fibroids while preserving the uterus.
Sampling of amniotic fluid that helps determine sex and detect abnormalities of fetus.
Greater risk to the mother or fetus, placing additional physical and emotional stress on a woman’s body. High-risk pregnancy can be associated with high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, epilepsy, thyroid disease, heart or blood disorders, etc.
