Early pregnancy problems

An overview of early pregnancy problems and miscarriages

Miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy within the first 20 weeks and around 10-20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. More than 80% of miscarriages happen within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. An early sign of this is vaginal spotting or bleeding so if you notice this be sure to call us immediately.

Other complications to watch out for during the early stages of pregnancy include:

  • Low amniotic fluid
  • Preeclampsia
  • Premature labour
  • Placenta previa
  • Gestational diabetes

How Auckland Gynaecology can help

We will watch for these complications through your pregnancy by doing ultrasounds, physical examinations and lab-tests. If we suspect a miscarriage we will set up an ultrasound and possibly take a blood test. If you suspect any of the above conditions please contact us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. We will do our very best to prevent medical complications for you and your baby. We can also provide you with excellent advice on what to do if you suffer from an early pregnancy problem such as miscarriage.
