Thrombophilias and The Risk To Your Pregnancy
Who is at Risk of Thrombophilia?
Types of Pregnancy Complications
Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) – This condition prevents an embryo from growing properly in the womb.
Placental insufficiency – This occurs when the placenta does not deliver enough nutrients and oxygen to the embryo or fetus.
Preeclampsia – This condition is characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to organs such as the liver and kidneys.
Premature birth – An increased risk of blood clots can often result in your child being born before the 37th week of pregnancy.
Miscarriage and stillbirth – Miscarriage and stillbirth both refer to fetuses that die while still in the womb. Miscarriages occur before the 20-week mark, while stillbirths occur after 20 weeks but before birth.
