Complications of Pregnancy

May 17, 2023

Pregnancy is a beautiful journey that many women experience as a life event. It can also be a challenging and uncomfortable time for many women who experience some unwanted and unpleasant symptoms associated with pregnancy. In this article we will explore some common problems associated with pregnancy and how to lessen their impact on you and your baby.

Morning sickness

Morning sickness is a common discomfort experienced by many pregnant women. It typically occurs during the first trimester and can involve nausea, vomiting, and fatigue. To alleviate morning sickness, it is important to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day and avoid foods that trigger nausea. Ginger tea or hard candies, as well as vitamin B6 supplements, may also help relieve symptoms.

A pregnant woman rests


Pregnancy can cause extreme fatigue, especially during the first and third trimesters. To alleviate fatigue it is important to get plenty of rest and sleep, maintain a healthy diet, and exercise regularly. Light exercise, such as walking or swimming, can also help boost energy levels.

Back pain

Back pain is a frequently occurring problem during pregnancy, especially in the later stages. This can be caused by the extra weight of the growing baby and uterus and changes in posture. To ease back pain it is important to maintain good posture, wear comfortable shoes, and practice gentle stretching exercises. A supportive pregnancy pillow or a massage from a trained professional may also help.


Heartburn is a common discomfort during pregnancy, especially during the second and third trimesters. This can be caused by the pressure of the growing uterus pushing up against the stomach. To lessen the chance of developing heartburn it is important to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day, avoid spicy or acidic foods, and drink plenty of water. Propping up the head of the bed during sleep and avoiding lying down immediately after eating may also help prevent heartburn.

Pregnant Woman Sitting In Nature


Constipation is a common occurrence during pregnancy, especially in the later stages. This can be caused by hormonal changes and the pressure of the expanding uterus on the small and large intestines. To alleviate constipation it is important to eat a high-fiber diet, drink plenty of water, and exercise regularly. An over-the-counter stool softener or laxative may also be recommended by a healthcare provider.  It is important to consult your healthcare provider before starting any medication.

Swollen feet and ankles

Swollen feet and ankles are a common problem during pregnancy, especially in the later stages. This can be caused by the extra fluid in the body and the pressure of the growing uterus on the blood vessels that carry blood from the lower extremities back to the heart. To minimize swollen feet and ankles it is important to elevate the legs when sitting or lying down, avoid standing for long periods of time, and wear comfortable shoes. Compression stockings may also be recommended by a healthcare provider.

Braxton-Hicks contractions

Braxton Hicks contractions are a common occurrence during pregnancy that typically are not experienced until the third trimester. These are mild, irregular contractions that prepare the uterus for labor. Braxton-Hicks contractions are not a signal that true labor has started. To alleviate Braxton Hicks contractions, it's important to stay hydrated, change positions frequently when lying down, and practice relaxation techniques.  Your healthcare provider can provide valuable information about these contractions to help educate you.

Doctor and patient have a consultation

Pregnancy can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms for many women. There are several ways to alleviate these discomforts and make the journey more comfortable. It is important to discuss any problems experienced during pregnancy with your healthcare provider who can offer explanations and guidance on appropriate remedies and treatments. By taking care of your body and seeking appropriate care you can have a more comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy experience.
