Fits In Pregnancy

Fits in pregnancy

Some unfortunate women face the problem of fits in pregnancy. A woman may have been struggling fits either from her childhood or during her youth. Through this blog we wish to help the readers by providing information about the situation.
Fits! What’s that?
A person is said to have had a fits attack when the brain increases its activity beyond normal levels. The electric activities of the brain increase to devastating levels causing jerks and memory loss.

Will there be any symptoms?
You need to keep a watch for the presence of any symptoms given below.

  • Feeling giddy or fainting.
  • Staying confused. Not being able to take a decision.
  • Unnecessary fear.
  • Uncontrolled anxiety
  • Constant headache that does not vanish even with medication.


How will this affect pregnancy?

  • Fits might lead to decreased heart rate in the foetus.
  • Placenta might get separated from the baby.
  • You might not be able to carry your baby to term.
  • If carried, you may have a premature delivery as well.
  • Some babies might have birth defects like cleft palate, neural defects and urinary tract problems.

Your baby will be checked constantly under ultrasounds for whether it has developed any abnormalities. If it has, immediate action will be taken by your doctor.


  • What safety measures must be taken before and during pregnancy?
  • Planning a preconception visit is a must.
  • Make sure that the medicines you take do not interfere with your pregnancy.
  • Maintaining a great level of folic acid is important as lack of folic acid may lead to neural defects.
  • Sleep for 8 hours.
  • It’s time to change your diet!
  • Smoking and alcohol must no more be a part of your life!
  • If during pregnancy, you are on medication for fits, you will be supported with vitamin K supplements.


Fits and birthing.
Fits might not occur during labor. If in case, it happens, labor will be stopped by inducing medicines. Delivery shall be done through C-section.  If you have experienced fits during your third trimester, you shall already be mentally prepared for a c-section much prior to your due date.
Mother may experience fits after birthing vaginally due to stress, pain during labor and sleep deprivation.

Do not develop stress or anxiety. Enter the doorstep of motherhood with strength and courage. Most of the times, it happens so, that our heart that is weaker takes a toll over our mind. But this time let your well prepared mind take a toll over your heart!
Wishing you lots of strength and courage!
