Labor may start

  • Too early (preterm): Before the 37th week of pregnancy
  • Late (postterm): After the 42nd week of pregnancy
  • Labor that progresses too slowly

In such cases, the health or life of the fetus may be endangered.

Some problems occur immediately after delivery of the fetus, around the time the placenta is delivered. They include

  • Excessive uterine bleeding at delivery
  • A uterus that is turned inside out (inverted uterus)
  • Uterine rupture
  • Fetal distress, respiratory distress in the newborn, and uterine rupture are uncommon complications of labor.
