The body undergoes numerous physiological changes during pregnancy in order to provide an adequate environment for fetal development, meet the increased metabolic demands and prepare for childbirthPregnancy is a natural but altered physiological state resulting in major changes in cardiovascular system, respiratory system, endocrine system, reproductive system and skeletal and bone changes..The body undergoes a number of physiological changes over the course of pregnancy.For both doctors and patients, the cutaneous findings may be most obvious and sometimes alarming. Obstetricians and dermatologists ought to be able to differentiate between normal changes and unhealthy ones. The pregnant mother undergoes essential physiological changes during pregnancy in order to support and accommodate the developing fetus. These modifications start after conception and affect every organ system in the body. This review underlines the major changes that occur during normal pregnancy.
