11... Postpartum cardiomyopathy
Also called peripartum cardiomyopathy, this rare form of heart failure occurs in the last month of pregnancy, or up to five months after giving birth. The symptoms include tiredness, shortness of breath, swollen ankles, swollen neck veins, and feeling of missed heartbeats or palpitations.

12... Pre-eclampsia
This affects up to six per cent of women during the second half of pregnancy or soon after giving birth. Early signs include high blood pressure and protein in your urine. Women are tested for these at antenatal appointments, as symptoms may not be obvious. Most cases are mild, but it can have serious complications for both mother and baby if not treated. It will usually go away after birth.
Although the exact cause isn’t known, having diabetes  and high blood pressure could increase your chances of developing pre-eclampsia, so it’s important to follow a healthy lifestyle to reduce your risk as much as you can.
13... Gestational diabetes
Gestational diabetes is fairly common during pregnancy, especially after 28 weeks. It affects up to 18 out of every 100 women who give birth in England and Wales.
Symptoms include dry mouth, needing to urinate frequently, tiredness and infections such as thrush. It can be controlled with diet and exercise, but some women need medication.
Untreated, it can cause premature birth or health issues for the baby, such as low blood sugar. It often goes away after birth, but you’re at increased risk in future pregnancies. It also means you are at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
