Hormonal and body changes, family and friend's interactions with you, and heightened emotions during pregnancy can make you vulnerable to depression during pregnancy.

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Prenatal exposure to alcohol can cause a range of disorders, known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. One of the most severe effects of drinking during pregnancy is fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS).

Rh Factor

Just as there are different major blood groups, such as A and B type blood, there also is an Rh factor. The Rh factor is the type of protein on the red blood cells. The Rh factor causes problems when an Rh-negative person's blood comes in contact with Rh-positive blood.
