Placenta praevia: Placenta lying low in the uterus, sometimes covering the mouth of the uterus completely so as to prevent the baby’s passage into the birth canal.

Abruptio placentae or placental abruption: Separation of the placenta from its uterine bed, causing mild or at times life threatening bleeding in the mother, compromising the fetal well being as well.

Meconium: Sticky blackish stool that the baby passes during the newborn period.

Pulmonary embolus: This can be a life threatening complication-it is a clot that has travelled from the leg veins up into the heart and blocked the blood supply to the lungs.

Hemorrhage: Bleeding from any site-at times heavily.

Prolapse of umbilical cord: The umbilical cord drops down through the cervix into the vagina and may get entangled with the baby.
