It’s a tricky business creating a new life - which is precisely why pregnant women are monitored throughout their pregnancy.
Pregnancy can take a toll on even the healthiest of women and complications can arise with little warning. Unfortunately, you have very little control over what happens in your pregnancy - apart from eating right, keeping active and avoiding drugs and alcohol.
This section is not intended to induce anxiety in what can already be an anxious time but is meant to explain certain pregnancy complications that may affect you or your baby. If you are ever concerned about any aspect of your pregnancy, or the health of your baby, speak to your health care provider.
