More often than not, your journey through pregnancy will be smooth and problem free.
There may be small hurdles along the way and you may even have symptoms that seem serious but turn out to be very minor or nothing at all. Occasionally though, things do go wrong. Women may find themselves subject to a barrage of treatments and hospital stays and unfortunately for some women, the premature end of their pregnancy. Some pregnancies simply never develop properly, others will suffer a complication along the way. No matter the reason, a problem with pregnancy can cause great distress and sadness.
