Common problems during pregnancy include:
As part of our dedication to you and your baby, St. Rose Dominican is proud to be the only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in the region, advancing medical research and community awareness of children's health issues.
Some maternal conditions are present since birth (congenital), such as Mullerian abnormalities. Other possible causes of maternal conditions include infection, genetic inheritance, and injury. In many cases, the causes of maternal conditions are not known.
The symptoms of maternal conditions depend on the specific condition and vary greatly. At Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican, our doctors carefully assess the health of pregnant women, taking note of any history of medical issues and signs of problems.
If your health care provider notices any signs of maternal conditions, such as unusual fetal development, high blood pressure, or high blood sugar levels, he or she will likely order additional tests to rule out or confirm a medical diagnosis.
Regular pregnancy checkups, screenings, and scans can help prevent some maternal conditions. In some instances, a condition may develop despite you and your health care provider’s best efforts.
At each pregnancy care visit, your doctor checks your health. Your doctor also carefully monitors your baby’s development and health status and will intervene if necessary.
Good pregnancy care can identify most maternal conditions. Proper treatment of high-risk pregnancies can increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy and birth and prevent most serious complications.
