Complications of Adolescent Birth and Postpartum Period

Pregnant adolescents have greater risks of complications than the average pregnant woman.

High-Risk Pregnancy

High-risk pregnancies are those concurrent disorders, pregnancy-related complications, or external factors that endanger the health of the woman and the fetus. Nurses must have the awareness regarding these diseases so they can act swiftly during these emergencies.

Placental and Cord Anomalies

The cord and the placenta are always being assessed for anomalies after birth.

Cesarean Birth

Cesarean birth becomes the birth method of choice, which is entirely different from vaginal birth, so from assessment until discharge, healthcare professionals holistically adjust the care plan to accommodate the woman anticipating cesarean birth.

Labor Complications

Getting through labor is one of the most anticipated events during a woman’s pregnancy. To avoid complications during labor, thorough assessment should be conducted by the health care providers early during the woman’s pregnancy.
