Sydney: Many pregnant asthmatic women, who may be remiss in using the right medication, may end up risking the health of their unborn child, a study reveals.If asthma is not correctly managed during pregnancy it can result in premature births, low birth weights and even stillbirths, said postdoctoral researcher Annette Osei-Kumah from University of Adelaide.Asthma is often worse during pregnancy due to different factors released from the placenta which cause inflammation in the mother`s lung, said Osei-Kumah.Previous studies reveal that during pregnancy, one-third of women report their asthma is worse, one-third maintain their asthma remains the same and another third report an improvement, said a university statement.However, most women underestimate the effect of asthma during their pregnancy, said Osei-Kumah.
