In spite of the frequency and singularity of pregnancy complications, your ability to avoid them by paying attention to your health and making wise choices during this time will have a major impact on your future and the future of your child. According to the world health organization we are going to cover some of the elements that contribute to the high mortality rate among women during childbirth in this post.
The following are the four leading causes of mother death during childbirth.
When it comes to female mortality, nearly all cases occur during or immediately preceding labor and delivery. Most of these problems manifest themselves during pregnancy, and while some are treatable, others are simply unavoidable. Pregnant women have a very difficult time avoiding problems that may arise as a direct result of their condition.
Other challenges may have previously been present before pregnancy, but they typically become more severe throughout the pregnancy, particularly if it is not managed correctly. You should always try to live a healthy lifestyle, for the benefit of your own health and the health of your unborn child.
Extreme bleeding is a common pregnancy problem that can be fatal to the mother.
A woman who gives birth and endures heavy bleeding needs immediate medical assistance or she may die. There are multiple mechanisms through which oxytocics given via injection soon after birth can reduce the likelihood of postpartum hemorrhage.
2. Pathogens or infections
Infections are dangerous for everyone, but they can be especially dangerous for pregnant women. If the mother practices good hygiene and recognizes the first signs of infection, she and her newborn baby can avoid contracting any serious illnesses.
The risk of contracting the virus while giving birth is high and can have serious consequences.
The onset of convulsions and other potentially fatal complications can be avoided if pre-eclampsia is diagnosed and treated promptly. The risk of eclampsia can be mitigated by administering magnesium sulfate to a pregnant woman who has been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia.
The risk of problems or maternal mortality during pregnancy and childbirth can be greatly reduced by taking preventative measures, such as avoiding unplanned pregnancies and maintaining good physical health at all times
