Certain health conditions which advise you to not get pregnant?

Are there any health conditions out there that can cause death from giving birth? My friend and I were talking about this and she said her cousin has a brain tumor. With that brain tumor it isnt safe for her to get pregnant meaning if she does, she needs to have an abortion(which happened once before.) Does anyone know what that is called or what other health conditions that are out there that can cause death by giving birth? I am just curious. Thank you to anyone who can answer this!

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. Pregnancy associated with other conditions could cause possible problems with trying to have a baby but it is usually associated with another condition such as your cousin with a brain tumor. However, there are those rare occasions, where women may bleed too much during labor that may cause death but an actual diagnosis of death due to child birth is pretty uncommon. Hope this helps.
