Chances of defective child births ...  1

The following characteristics of women affect risk during pregnancy.


About 13% of all pregnancies occur in adolescents. These girls are at increased risk of having the following:
  • Preeclampsia (a type of high blood pressure that develops during pregnancy)
  • Preterm labor
  •  Anemia

Adolescent girls can have babies who are born underweight (small for gestational age )

Part of the reason for these risks is that adolescents are less likely to get medical care during pregnancy. Thus, they may not understand what activities and behaviors (such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and having sex without using a condom) can put their pregnancy at risk. Many adolescents smoke, and they have a higher risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease. Using condoms can help prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

Women aged 35 and older are at increased risk of having the following:
  • A preexisting disorder that increases risk during pregnancy, such as high blood  pressure or  diabetes
  • Problems related to the pregnancy, such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy), chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus, and stillbirth
  • Complications during labor, such as difficult labor or a placenta that detaches too soon placental abruption  or is mislocated

My advise
1....  The couple must maintain good health before conceiving.
2...    Due to over tensions or other during pregnancy hypertension may be developed which causes birth defects
3....   Preterm labor also cause of defective births
4...    Anemia before conceiving also cause of defective births
5...    Gestational diabetes developed during pregnancy if not controlled may cause defective births
6....   Woman age above 35 years also cause of defective child births
7...    I advise every couple to maintain positive relations, happy and follow healthy habits.
