Complications of pregnancy:
Pregnancy problems or health-related issues that affect pregnancy are often termed as complications of pregnancy; there are various kinds of complications that require medical attention.
The risk of pregnancy can be for the baby, mother, or both. Hence, every little problem experienced during, before, or after the pregnancy, should be communicated with the parental support provider.
Common Complications During pregnancy:
Complications during pregnancy can be mild as an acute discomfort or as severe as a life-threatening illness; we all have heard stories about death during pregnancy because of a lack of good parental care. The risk of pregnancy can be physical or mental, and it is possible to overcome all these complications if discussed with the parental care provider at the right time.
However, it is very hard to distinguish the symptoms of complications from pregnancy symptoms. Here are some common complications of pregnancy:
Developed due to the lack of red blood cells in the mother’s body, anemia can be very harmful to both mother and the baby. It is advised to keep track of your energy levels and look out for symptoms of anemia which commonly include tiredness and weakness.
2. Urinary Tract Infections:
It is a bacterial infection in the urinary tract, which causes symptoms like burning sense during urination, fever, tiredness, shakiness, increased frequency of urination, reddish urination, or back pain. It is easily detectable by blood test and can be cured using antibiotics generally in 1-2 days.
3. Mental health conditions:
Pregnancy is a very tiring process, and mothers can often get depressed. The parents need to do recreational activities so that the mother can feel fresh and happy.
If needed, couples should feel free to consult a psychologist for therapy for the betterment of both mother and baby. If left unchecked, this can also lead to post-pregnancy depression, which is much harder to diagnose.
Other common pregnancy problems are:
- High blood pressure.
- Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
- Obesity and weight gain.
