Difficult deliveries often contribute to the lack of oxygen for a baby (Colledge, 1999). Lack of oxygen causes brain damage and the longer a baby is without it the more extreme the damage can be. Furthermore, there are many other factors during pregnancy that could cause CP. If a woman is expecting twins or triplets there is an increase chance that one child will have CP (Colledge, 1999). Infections, poor nutrition, and exposure to toxic substances such as nicotine and alcohol are other factors that can contribute to CP (Colledge, 1999).

Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia are also likely to develop, with characteristic tissue swelling and proteinuria. In extreme full flown eclampsia ( convulsions or coma) may occur. Women with chronic hypertension are at higher risk for fetal growth retardation, stillbirth and 4 to 5 grater risk for placental abruption.
In most cases, they do not know how to deal with asthma during pregnancy.

When pregnant some women develop anemia when u have anemia the blood doesn’t be healthy red blood cells to carry to your tissue to the unborn baby.
Progesterone is required to maintain life for the fetus. When they are blocked, the developing baby dies. Next pill prostaglandin that causes uterine contractions pushes the baby out (Giovanna 191-197). Although the pill may sound like a good idea, it does have some bad effects as well. Some of the dangers of RU-486 are severe bleeding, cramps, and diarrhea.
The ethanol found in alcohol may impair the nutrient support of the fetus. Acetaldehyde, a major metabolite, crosses the placenta and is teratogenic. Since the alcohol stays in the fetus for a long time, the small liver is unable to metabolize the alcohol. The alcohol also travels through the blood stream going directly to the baby's brain, and this can damage the central nervous system. The common, severe, and hazardous side effect that happens to the fetus because of alcohol is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
The unborn child must be protected from and must endure certain teratogens, depending on the lifestyle of the mother, to be successfully born as a healthy baby. For the duration of prenatal development, the unborn offspring may be affected by a multiplicity of teratogens, which are different factors which can have negative effects on the fetus, and can even cause birth defects. While there are countless factors that can affect an unborn child, the most commonly seen teratogens that should be avoided by a pregnant woman including alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. The intake and ingestion of alcohol during pregnancy is the cause of a disorder which is fetal alcohol syndrome. Fetal alcohol syndrome can cause a birth defect which can cause mental and physical disabilities, as well as cardiac defects in the heart for some situations.
(American 1) Infants born to teenage mothers and low birth weight are considered high risk factors for SIDS. SIDS has been researched throughout the world, with many medical experts debating the studies. Some past theories believed to trigger SIDS were childhood vaccinations, blood disorders, apnea and even parent neglect, but none of these theories were proven true. In a more recent study, the H Pylori Link to SIDS proposed that there was "An association between Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and Helicobacter Pylori infection." (SIDS Alliance 5) The study asserted that H Pylori, a type of common bacteria associated to ulcers, was lethal when passed through saliva from an infected parent or other care giver by contact such as kissing.
More than half of the people affected by cerebral palsy are children. This can be considered a crisis. Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological condition, ranging from mild to severe, often accompanied by physical, mental, and emotional affects. Doctors everywhere have been working to prevent it, since most cases happen during or shortly after labor. The main cause is lack of oxygen to the brain, although there are many other causes such as a blood vessel bursting in the brain or a maternal infection.
Cerebral palsy has no known official cause; several factors identified in the 1980s suggest that cp can happen before, during or after birth. But the exact cause is unknown in many cases why. Factors include lack of oxygen at birth, Rh incompatibility- where the mother’s own antibodies attack the fetus’s blood cells, jaundice – where yellow colored bile would normally flow in the bloodstream in small sizes, build up, leading blood cells to die and left untreated, brain damage could occur. There are two ways cp can occur, congenital and acquired. Congenital cerebral palsy happens to premature babies born too early – less than nine months or 37 weeks or under 5.5 pounds (low birth weight ) and multiple births such as twins.
