Pregnancy and Kidney

During pregnancy, the uterus become large that compress the ureters. This change lead to the problem of draining urine from the kidney causing the urine to remain stagnant. As a result, the bacteria accumulates in the kidney rather than washing out. This causes infection. Usually, kidney disorders worsen only in pregnant women who have high blood pressure that is not well-controlled. Having a chronic kidney disorder before becoming pregnant increases the risk that the fetus will not grow as much as expected or be stillborn. Having a severe kidney disorder usually prevents women from carrying a baby to term.
