Pregnancy Risks

Although pregnancy is in itself a natural state of every woman, there are risks for the child and the mother, which can be prevented.

Every 30 seconds a prematurely born baby dies5
Premature birth carries various risks for the baby4, such as:
  • Respiratory distress syndrome
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Neurological development issues

Pregnancy is a balance between inflammatory factors. High-risks pregnancies indicate an imbalance among inflammation factors.

Inflammation induces typical risk factors for premature birth and miscarriage:
  • Increased contractility
  • Weakening of membranes
  • Slows down cervical maturation

Pregnancy monitoring, regular checkups by a doctor and the use of recommended dietary supplements ensure a healthy pregnancy and reduces the risk of premature birth or miscarriage.
