It is quite another thing - the presence of scoliosis grade 3-4, which interferes with the shape of the chest and pelvis, which affects the condition of internal organs. When expressed scoliosis thorax decreases in volume on one side of the spine so-called bulging rib hump on the other hand, appears smoothed edges. Naturally, this can not affect the state of the cardiovascular system and lungs. When the load increases also due to gestation. And as the respiratory and cardiovascular systems are responsible for the supply of oxygen to the fetus, suffers not only the body of the woman, but the body of the fetus, it starts to lag behind in development, the lack of oxygen adversely affects the state of his brain.

Risk during pregnancy and is skewed to the formation of pelvic disorders in the pelvic organs. For example, violations can relate to the state of the uterus and its appendages, and this is directly can affect the course of pregnancy.


Scoliosis and childbirth - there is great risk of complications?

Women suffering from scoliosis of 1-2 degree, delivery flow as well as other women not suffering from scoliosis.

How does the increased load during pregnancy on the woman's internal organs

During pregnancy, all the organs of women work with high load, which increases with the growth of the fetus. Especially hard for the heart, which is to deliver blood to the tissues, not only pregnant women but also to the tissues of the fetus. If the heart muscle is not strong enough reduced, tissue hypoxia may develop mother and child. Hypoxia fetus develops in the case of impaired circulation in the placenta. This chronic lack of nutrients and oxygen in particular is very dangerous to the fetus, he begins to lag behind in development and lack of oxygen in the cells of the brain can occur irreversible changes.

Large load during pregnancy is the liver and kidneys. In the liver, break down and neutralize all toxic metabolic products from the body of the mother and child, and kidneys remove these substances from the body. Normal operation of the liver and kidneys are also very important during pregnancy.

Disruption of the small blood vessels in the second half of pregnancy may give rise to first, edema, then high blood pressure and complications from the kidney, and brain. Such a condition called preeclampsia. Correct operation of the cardiovascular system, liver and kidneys can reduce the toxic effects of preeclampsia on the body of a woman and child.
