Very Low: With modern medicine, your chances are very low. Receive good prenatal care which can identify conditions that place you at risk. Then the proper arrangements can be made to keep you safe at delivery. Tell your doc if you have any medical problems, prior surgical complications, reactions to medicines, and follow their expertise. Delivering at a facility with emergency capabilities also is safer.
