Most pregnancy-related complications appear to resolve at delivery or shortly thereafter. Common examples are nausea, vomiting, gestational diabetes, constipation and pregnancy induced hypertension. Women who developed such complications are known to be at increased risk of developing similar complications in future pregnancies. It has recently become evident that these women are at an increased risk of long-term medical complications affecting both mother and the child health. To study the prevalence of maternal and foetal complications among pregnant women in Bihar. 40 healthy pregnant women of 1st trimester were selected from Harpur panchayat in Pusa, Samastipur, Bihar (India). A specialized questionnaire was developed to record maternal and foetal clinical complications during pregnancy. They were followed up in each month for any pregnancy induced complications. It was found that all women had experienced nausea and vomiting. 60% had heartburn and 20% had constipation while 27.5 % suffered from oedema and 32.5% had anaemia. However, 65 % had cravings and aversion complications. Among foetal complications, 52.5% had poor growth malformation during pregnancy. It was concluded pregnancy induced complications may increase maternal and foetal death if they were not properly checked. Maximum pregnant women experienced nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thus, the prevalence of maternal complication such as nausea and vomiting during pregnancy was highest among the pregnant women.
