Unlikely if treated: Among the most common complications arising from overt hypothyroidism during pregnancy are preeclampsia/hypertension, placental rupture, preterm delivery with low birth weight, postpartum hemorrhage, and physical/neurological/psychological problems for the child. Babies born to women with "untreated hypothyroidism" due to hashimoto’s disease may have a higher risk of birth defects.
