Pregnancy problemsBy Mayo Clinic staff
During pregnancy, your baby's health is your top priority. That's why pregnancy problems can be so scary.
If you have a chronic condition — such as diabetes, epilepsy or depression — understand how your condition could affect your pregnancy and what complications you might face. You might need close monitoring or a change in treatment plan to help prevent pregnancy problems.
In other cases, pregnancy problems such as gestational diabetes complicate what seemed to be a healthy pregnancy. And for anyone, concerns about miscarriage or bed rest can be troubling.
Although pregnancy problems may weigh heavily on your mind, remember that there's much you can do to promote a healthy pregnancy. Count on your health care provider to help you make the best decisions for you and your baby.
