Complications during Pregnancy Answer A6520

Usually, every bleeding episode during pregnancy is alarming and should be treated as dangerous both for the baby and the mother until proven otherwise.

Every time bleeding or even spotting occurs, the pregnant woman should visit her gynecologist or the closest emergency service since there are several medical pathological conditions that might affect the future health of the baby or, if not treated on time, cause life threatening bleeding.

However, in many cases, the bleeding does not cause any damage to the baby’s health, so you might visit your gynecologist to make sure that everything is all right with your baby.
