  • Abstract

    Physiological changes occur in pregnancy to upbringing the developing fetus and prepare the mother for labor and delivery. Early changes result in metabolic demands, increasing levels of pregnancy hormones, particularly those of progesterone and estrogen. Later changes starting in midpregnancy are caused from the expanding uterus by mechanical pressure. During pregnancy, some changes in maternal physiology can occur including increased maternal fat, blood volume, cardiac output, and blood flow to the kidneys and uteroplacental unit, decreased blood pressure, delayed gastrointestinal motility, and gastric emptying. These alterations are essential to optimize fetus and mother health.
