It’s hard to avoid complications during your pregnancy.
And it can be even harder to avoid the worst of it.
Pregnant mothers and their babies are vulnerable.
That’s why it’s important to talk to your health care provider about what you can do to prevent pregnancy complications.
Here are some things you can and can’t do during pregnancy.
Pregnancy complications in the U.S. While most pregnancies are healthy, about 2.4 million pregnancies in the United States each year are considered unsafe for both women and babies, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The American Pregnancy Association, a nonprofit organization that advocates for women and families, says more than 100 million pregnancies are prevented each year.
But pregnancy complications can happen even when there’s no signs of an infection, which can happen in a few ways.
Some of these complications can cause serious medical problems for pregnant women or babies.
For example, complications from a bacterial infection can lead to a miscarriage, which happens when a woman has a miscarriage but does not know it.
Others can cause complications that could be fatal, including preeclampsia, a condition in which a woman’s blood pressure drops too low.
And complications can occur after childbirth, when a baby is born with a birth defect or other health problems.

What can I do if I’m pregnant?
The U.N. says that in some cases, you can’t stop pregnancy until you know you have no other options.
And you may not know how to do that.
Here’s what you need to know about when you’re pregnant and how you can prevent pregnancy.
How many weeks will I get pregnant?
Some women can get pregnant for more than a year, and others can get pregnancy results within months.
The length of pregnancy varies depending on the circumstances.
You may have a long-term risk of pregnancy complications like preeclampia, fetal alcohol syndrome, or a fetal abnormality.
Your risk can be lower if you are older, have a history of miscarriage, or are having your first child.
The longer you wait to get pregnant, the higher your risk of complications, according the Centers to Prevent and Control of Pregnancy and Pregnancy-Related Problems.
You can also be at increased risk if you have certain medical conditions or have certain blood type differences.
How do I know if I have pregnancy complications?
If you or your health plan is using a pregnancy test, the first thing to check is your blood pressure.
If you have high blood pressure, you may have low levels of pregnancy hormones.
The test can show if your blood is high or low and help you determine if you should take pregnancy tests.
If your blood tests show high levels of hormones, you have some pregnancy risk.
If they don’t, you might have a normal pregnancy.
If this is the case, your health or care provider may recommend a pregnancy screening test to check your pregnancy status.
If there is a pregnancy risk, talk to a health care professional about how you might be able to manage the risk.
For more information on pregnancy risks, talk with your healthcare provider.
Can you tell if you or someone you know has preeclamations?
A person can be diagnosed with preeclamsia if their blood pressure falls below 125/90 mmHg or if they are experiencing symptoms of preeclamiemia, such as tiredness, feeling weak, or nausea.
Your health care practitioner can help you figure out if you might need to go to the hospital for a test to test for preeclamping symptoms.
If so, you’ll be given a test and asked to sign a form.
A blood test that comes back positive for preeClampsia can indicate the presence of the disease, and it can also help to determine how long you need treatment for the condition.
What about miscarriage and premature rupture of membranes?
Most miscarriages and premature ruptures of membranes (PROM) can’t be prevented.
But you can help prevent pregnancy by: Taking a pregnancy-related test and getting a blood test within 24 hours of a possible miscarriage or PROM.
