Obstetrical Complications

Maternal obstetrical complications can take many forms and can affect the clinical course and outcome for the mother or child.

During the prenatal period, maternal conditions such as gestational diabetes, hypertension, cardiac disease, renal disease, or blood clotting abnormalities may require intensive and ongoing management.  Any of these can complicate the course of a pregnancy and may affect the outcome, and must be properly diagnosed and managed.

During the course of labor or delivery, and even following delivery, other complications can occur, including intrapartum or postpartum hemorrhage, which can affect the clinical course and outcome of the mother.  Uterine rupture, cervical laceration, liver injury and clotting abnormalities require timely recognition and management to prevent permanent injury or death.  If there has been an obstetrical complication that has resulted in maternal disability or death further evaluation of the medical records is recommended.
