A complication of pregnancy in which the embryo is implanted outside of "the womb" or uterine cavity. These pregnancies generally cannot result in viable birth and can lead to potentially life-threatening bleeding in the mother. Risk factors include a history of pelvic inflammatory disease, prior surgeries, and use of intrauterine devices.
A condition in which there is a high risk of miscarriage. Symptoms may include vaginal bleeding or contractions before the fetus (i.e. unborn child) can survive in the outside world (typically around the 23rd week). Causes include major genetic abnormalities in the fetus, infection, or cocaine use.
High blood pressure in a pregnant woman. This is not uncommon, but if not properly managed can lead to complications in pregnancy. If accompanied by excess protein in the urine, it may be a sign of a more serious and potentially life-threatening condition known as pre-eclampsia.
A rare, but life-threatening, complication of late pregnancy or the time immediately after delivery. It is related to a specific genetic mutation, causing fat to accumulate in the liver, potentially leading to organ failure.
