Having a baby can be a wonderful gift. However, it does not come without risks to the baby and to the mother. Like any medical condition, a pregnancy needs to be carefully monitored to ensure that you are not placed in harm’s way. Prenatal care and proper monitoring is particularly important for pregnant women, since two lives are in the hands of the doctor.
With the right prenatal care, mothers can stay informed about their pregnancy. You can learn of any potential complications and treat any issues before they become a big deal. However, if doctors fail to monitor an expecting mother a fatal injury could occur. Negligent monitoring can lead to complications in the mother such as hypertension, gestational diabetes or premature birth. With the proper monitor, fetal abnormalities may also go undiagnosed and without proper treatment.
