Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent hemangiomas in pregnancy.

They are more common in premature infants. To help reduce your baby’s chances of developing a hemangioma, follow your doctor’s advice to avoid premature birth.

One study showed a higher risk of developing a hemangioma for infants subjected to chorionic villi sampling, used to detect birth defects during the pregnancy. Women who are considering chorionic villi sampling should discuss this risk with their doctors.
