Complications can occur at any time in labor. There are three stages of labor and complications can be different in each of the three stages ( the first stage, the second stage and the third stage).
Sometimes, the same complication occurs from the beginning of the first stage through to the end of the seond stage.
Complications in the third stage are usually different from the first two stages but may be a consequence of these stages.
Complications can be faced by either the baby or the mother or by both at the same time. They can range from the very minor to very severe to fatal complications.
It is difficult to predict when complications can set in. But, on the whole, risks of labor complications are comparatively less in a healthy woman who has had regular prenantal care than in a woman who has chronic illness or who has had no prenantal care or who has a history of previous labor complications.
The following are some of the common complications.
