Recognizing and Addressing Pregnancy Complications

The United States, with all of its resources, ranks 49th in industrialized countries for a safe birth. Although pregnancy is considered a normal physiological event, complications may develop that effect maternal or fetal health, or both. Some women have health problems prior to the pregnancy that are impacted by the normal physiological changes.

This on-demand webinar will review common high risk conditions that impact pregnancy outcome. A safe pregnancy is a human right for every woman regardless of race or income. Care providers must be aware to the subtle changes that may signal an underlying or developing complication of pregnancy.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to identify leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality.
  • You will be able to describe high-risk conditions in pregnancy.
  • You will be able to discuss management of high risk conditions in pregnancy to minimize maternal and fetal risk.
  • You will be able to describe high-risk postpartum conditions.
