Intrauterine growth restriction
Causes of intrauterine growth restriction vary but include placenta abnormalities, high blood pressure in the mother, infections, and smoking or alcohol abuse.
With this condition, a baby is born weighing less than 90 percent of other babies at the same gestational age.
Ultrasounds during pregnancy help monitor a baby's weight. Depending on the results, the baby may need to be delivered early.
