Although some complications are minor setbacks that resolve over time, some lead to longstanding disability.

However, not all women are mothers, and their nutritional and health needs go far beyond motherhood and reproduction. Women of all ages in developing countries face elevated risks of nutritional deficiencies.

The assumption that almost all ethnic Germans migrated to Germany is supported by the continuously declining numbers of newly arriving Aussiedler.
