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.
