Pregnancy complications

It’s a good idea to talk to your OB/GYN or midwife about any concerning symptoms that occur during pregnancy. However, some symptoms require immediate medical attention, including:

  • Contractions before 37 weeks
  • Heavy vaginal bleeding
  • Persistent and intense headache or blurred vision
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Severe nausea or vomiting
  • Significant decrease in fetal activity
  • Swelling of hands or feet
