Adverse pregnancy outcomes are on the rise world-wide, leading to increased perinatal morbidity and mortality. Moreover, pregnancy disorders can lead to disruption in fetal programming. The fetal programming hypothesis suggests that the intrauterine environment during critical periods of organogenesis and tissue growth may permanently alter organ structure and function in an epigenetic manner. Accompanied with this are immense economic and emotional costs. In the course of its research on healthy pregnancy, scientists have made great progress in understanding features of disorders that may occur during pregnancy. These ongoing investigations are important to find ways to treat and prevent these disorders to support women in having healthy pregnancies and babies.
