For women in Phoenix, Arizona, who are dealing with pregnancy, the last few weeks are often filled with anticipation, excitement and worry. For some, the baby can't be born fast enough, and no one wants to go through a prolonged or delayed delivery process. A recent study published in "Obstetrics and Gynecology," however, suggests that a lengthy labor isn't necessarily grounds for medical intervention.
Pregnant women in Phoenix, Arizona, and throughout the country, strive to live healthy lifestyles while their babies grow within them. Sometimes, hereditary or other health issues crop up during pregnancy, and they can be a danger to an unborn child. Understanding those risks and working with medical providers to get ahead of issues can reduce the chance of birth injury.
