I may come into contact with some women who are pregnant as a Therapist. I should be aware of what positions are safe and most comfortable for them, since they are often experiencing lower back pain due to the extra weight. I should also be aware of the complications and things that can go wrong. For example, in Placenta Abruption, the placenta detaches from the uterine wall prematurely, which causes hemorrhaging in the mother and reduces the baby’s oxygen supply, which is very dangerous. Also dangerous, is Ectopic Pregnancy, in which a woman does not know she is pregnant because the fertilized ovum is outside of the uterine cavity. This situation in particular can be very dangerous because the first symptom is sometimes shock.
