Most pregnancies follow a course through nine months of growth and development. However, in some instances – whether through external factors or a mother’s health issues – a pregnancy is termed “high-risk.”
Some health concerns that may qualify you as a high-risk pregnancy include:
- Severe Anemia
- Preterm labor
- Gestational diabetes
- Hypertension, pre-eclampsia
- Bleeding in pregnancy
- Amniotic fluid problems
- Rh Disease
- Maternal and fetal infections
- Post-term pregnancy
- Digestive and liver disorders
- Multiples (twins or triplets)
- Prior pregnancy loss
Our providers have years of experience with high-risk situations. The team take great care in creating a care plan that fits your needs and meets your specific health challenges. This plan usually includes more prenatal screenings and tests and more office visits.
On occasion, we will recommend a consultation with a high-risk specialist (perinatologist). These doctors are trained specifically in the care of high-risk mothers and babies. Our providers and the perinatologist work closely together to provide the best care possible.
