1. Gestational Diabetes:
    • Some women develop diabetes during pregnancy, which can lead to further complications if not managed appropriately.
  2. Preeclampsia:
    • Characterized by high blood pressure and damage to organs such as the liver and kidneys, preeclampsia is a serious condition that can arise usually in the second half of pregnancy.
  3. Hyperemesis Gravidarum:
    • Beyond common morning sickness, some women experience severe nausea and vomiting, which can cause dehydration and weight loss.
  4. Anemia:
    • Pregnant women can be prone to anemia, which involves a decrease in red blood cells, leading to fatigue and other complications.
  5. Infections:
    • Certain infections can potentially harm the developing baby or cause complications during labor and delivery.
  6. Placenta Previa:
    • When the placenta covers the cervix either partially or completely, it can result in bleeding and requires careful monitoring.
  7. Preterm Labor:
    • Labor that begins before 37 weeks of pregnancy is considered preterm and can lead to premature birth, which can pose various health risks for the baby.
  8. Depression and Anxiety:
    • Emotional well-being is crucial during pregnancy, and some women may experience mental health challenges, which require attention and support.
  9. Physical Strain:
    • The physical changes and demands of pregnancy can sometimes lead to pain, discomfort, and difficulty sleeping.
  10. Excessive Weight Gain:
    • Gaining too much weight can contribute to several complications, such as an increased risk for cesarean section (C-section) and overweight babies.
  11. Birthing Complications:
    • During labor, challenges such as prolonged labor, abnormal fetal position, and issues with the umbilical cord can pose risks.

Understanding these risks allows for better preparation and management throughout the pregnancy journey. It is essential for pregnant women to remain in close contact with their healthcare providers, adhere to recommended guidelines, and seek support when needed to navigate through potential challenges effectively.
