In brief: Pregnancy loss

Untreated celiac disease, even when subclinical, has been associated with pregnancy loss, menstrual disorders, and infertility.
Treatment of celiac disease appears to prevent these problems.

In brief: Inadequate nutrition

Poor nutrition leads to undersized infants & sometimes premature labor.
It adversely affects maternal health. Uncontrolled celiac disease leads to poor nutrition. There is a medical fad in the us where many people believe they have celiac disease when they don't & adopt inadequate diets as a result. See you doctor for diagnosis & a nutritionist for dietary advice. Not the other way around.
