What you need to know about a delayed pregnancy?
Why, when the gestation period is approaching 41 weeks, do doctors try hard to send a woman to the hospital? What they fear. Everyone knows that premature pregnancy is dangerous for the baby – he is not mature and is not able to communicate with the outside world on his own. But how can the delayed pregnancy affect the baby’s health? Not everyone knows.
Briefly, the problem is the unfavorable effect of repetition on the fetus, in addition, the condition complicates the birth process, which increases the subsequent neonatal morbidity in the baby, and worse, the risk of perinatal mortality increases significantly.
The reason is simple – the transferred fetus reduces resistance to hypoxia. With intrauterine hypoxia, the baby begins to defecate into the amniotic fluid, and as the child constantly swallows the water and makes respiratory movements – the meconium enters the lung tissue and leads to its contamination, and correspondingly, weighting the symptoms of hypoxia.
In practice, distinguish between true (biological) and imaginary (physiological) perenashivanie or prolonged pregnancy.
