Pregnancy complications are hard to diagnose and treat due to complex etiologies and pathophysiologies. Adding to this difficulty is the observation that the distribution of risk is not even across populations of different geographical ancestry. Pregnancy complications are disproportionately high in African American populations. This chapter provides an overview of various factors that can contribute to higher risk and likely racial disparity.
