High Risk Pregnancy
A pregnancy may be considered to be high-risk when there are potential complications that could affect the mother, the baby, or both. These types of pregnancies require advanced management to ensure the best outcome for both mother and the baby.
Some of the factors that may lead to a high-risk pregnancy are:
- Maternal age.
- Pre-existing medical conditions such as: high blood pressure, diabetes, sexually transmitted diseases, autoimmune disease, lung, kidney, or heart problems.
- Medical conditions that may occur during pregnancy such as preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes.
- Complications during pregnancy such as: premature labor, fetal problems, and placental problems.
If your pregnancy is considered to be high-risk, we may refer you to a maternal-fetal specialist, who will work with us during your pregnancy to ensure the best possible outcome for both you and your baby.
