Complications of childbirth may include prolonged labour, breech delivery, cord prolapse, aspiration, and birth injuries, premature labour and multiple pregnancies.

Labour becomes even more difficult if the mother's pelvic organs, bones, or tissues are malformed, if the foetus is malpositioned, or if the mother lacks sufficient force to help expedite the foetus through the birth canal.
