Pregnancy & High Risk Issues

National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome

Sidelines
Provides nationwide support for women and their families experiencing complicated pregnancies. A pregnancy is termed "high risk" or "complicated" when the life or health of the mother or baby may be at risk. It is estimated that approximately 1 out of every 4 women will experience pregnancy complications this year, sometimes leading to the birth of a premature baby.
We believe that families can cope more successfully with a high-risk pregnancy with appropriate medical intervention, education, and a strong support system.

The mission of Group B Strep International (GBSI) is to promote international awareness and prevention of Group B Strep (GBS) disease in babies before birth through early infancy.

Vasa Previa Foundation
Vasa previa is a rarely (1:3000) reported condition in which fetal blood vessel(s) from the placenta or umbilical cord crosses the entrance to the birth canal, beneath the baby. The condition has a high fetal mortality rate (50-90%). This can be attributed to rapid fetal exsanguination resulting from the vessels tearing when the cervix dilates, membranes rupture or if the vessels become pinched off as they are compressed between the baby and the walls of the birth canal.

DES Action USA
DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen drug that was given to millions of pregnant women primarily from 1938-1971. Use of DES during pregnancy was thought to prevent miscarriage and ensure a healthy pregnancy. DES did not work, and women who took DES and the children they carried are at risk for certain health problems and may need special care. Find out if you were exposed to DES and if you were, tell your doctor.
