Older age and conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity increase the risk, which is why the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) says expectant mothers should talk with their obstetrician and physician anesthesiologist to develop a plan that ensures the safest pregnancy, childbirth and recovery.
