Obstetric complications

Obstetric concerns may also lead to advice to avoid pregnancy, that is, previous recurrent post-partum haemorrhage or multiple uterine scars with risk of placenta accreta. Women with prior histories of early onset or severe pre-eclampsia or preterm delivery may warrant prepregnancy counselling. Recurrence risks and treatment plans have been addressed in Chapters 13 and 18. Women may come for counselling following a previous traumatic delivery. Such visits are usually very valuable in helping women come to terms with adverse events in previous pregnancies, offering explanations for previous management plans and making clear plans for subsequent pregnancies. It is not uncommon for women to choose not to conceive following particularly traumatic deliveries, as they perceive that they will necessarily be exposed to the same stress with subsequent pregnancies. The extent to which such situations arise has not been sufficiently formally studied. One visit for counselling in such circumstances can be very rewarding.
