What are the Precautions taken for a high-risk pregnancy?

  • High-risk pregnancies require management by a specially trained gynecologist to help ensure the best outcome for the mother and baby.

Maternal Age: One of the most common risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy is the age of the mother-to-be. Women who will be under age 17 or over age 35 when their baby is due are at greater risk of complications. The risk of miscarriage and genetic defects further increases after age 40.

Medical Conditions that Exist Before Pregnancy: Conditions such as High Blood Pressure, lungs, kidney, or heart problems; diabetes, autoimmune disease, or chronic infections such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can present risks for the mother and/or her unborn baby.

Pregnancy-Related Issues: Often pregnancy is classified as high risk because of issues that arise from the pregnancy itself and that have little to do with the mother’s health. These include:

Premature Labor is labor that begins before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Dhanvantari Hospital has the best doctor for high-risk pregnancies. Although there is no way to know which women will experience preterm labor or birth, there are factors that place women at higher risk, such as certain infections, a shortened cervix, or previous preterm birth.

Fetal problems, which can sometimes be seen on ultrasound. Approximately 2% to 3% of all babies have a minor or major structural problem in development. Sometimes there may be a family history of fetal problems, but other times these problems are completely unexpected.

Multiple births mean you are carrying more than one baby (twins, triplets, quadruplets, etc.). Multiple pregnancies, which are more common as women are using more infertility treatments, increase the risk of premature labor, gestational diabetes, and pregnancy-induced High Blood Pressure.
