High Risk Pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy refers to a pregnancy that carries higher health risks for the pregnant individual, the fetus, or both. Pregnancy complications are more likely to occur in cases where there are specific health conditions or when the pregnant person is either under 17 or over 35 years old. Close monitoring is necessary during these pregnancies to minimize the likelihood of complications.

High Risk Pregnancy

What are the risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy?

Sometimes a high-risk pregnancy is the result of a medical condition present before pregnancy. In other cases, a medical condition that develops during pregnancy for either you or your baby causes a pregnancy to become high risk.

Advanced maternal age

As women get older, there are some increased risks associated with pregnancy. Here are some factors that contribute to higher pregnancy risks for mothers older than age 35.

Lifestyle choices

Engaging in habits such as smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, and using illegal drugs can indeed pose risks to a pregnancy.

Maternal health problems

High blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, epilepsy, thyroid disease, heart or blood disorders, poorly controlled asthma, and infections can increase pregnancy risks.

Pregnancy complications

Various complications that develop during pregnancy can pose risks. Examples include an unusual placenta position and fetal growth.

Multiple pregnancy

Women who are pregnant with more than one fetus, such as twins, triplets, or higher-order multiples, do indeed face higher risks compared to those carrying a single fetus

Pregnancy history

A history of pregnancy-related hypertension disorders, such as preeclampsia, increases the risk of having this diagnosis during the next pregnancy.
