What is Chorioamnionitis (Maternal Infection)?
Pregnancy can have the tendency to be dangerous for both mother and child. That’s why the expecting mother must receive the best prenatal care. Prenatal care and screening help reduce risks during labor and birth. Pregnancy problems, such as maternal infections, can be detected and treated early.
Chorioamnionitis, also known as amnionitis or intra-amniotic infection, is a maternal infection that can occur on or before labor. The name is derived from chorion and amnion, which refer to the outer membrane and the fluid-filled sac that surround the fetus.
