High Risk Pregnancy Q & A

A high-risk pregnancy occurs when there’s an elevated risk of complications for either mother or child. There are a number of factors that can cause your pregnancy to be considered high risk, including but not limited to:

  • Being over 35 or under 17 years old
  • Advanced maternal age
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Human immunodeficiency disease (HIV)
  • Previous miscarriages
  • Carrying multiples (twins, triplets, etc.)

It’s important to understand that not every woman who has a high-risk pregnancy will experience complications. It simply means that you need additional monitoring as you near your due date.

Even if you’re not currently pregnant, but you’re thinking about adding to your family and you suspect that your pregnancy may be classified as high risk, contact My OB/GYN Specialists in advance to learn how you can prepare for a healthy and enjoyable pregnancy.

Your obstetrician at My OB/GYN Specialists keeps a close eye on your health as you move through the stages of your pregnancy. You might need to come in for more frequent exams, and additional testing may be required to ensure that both you and your child are healthy.

Part of managing a high-risk pregnancy involves following the advice of your specialist when it comes to lifestyle modifications. You may be advised to make dietary changes, get more or less exercise, and avoid exposure to cigarette smoke or toxic substances.

Many women with high-risk pregnancies require more frequent ultrasounds to check fetal development. These exams are painless, take little time, and provide your doctor with a wealth of information that can help guide your care.

If your baby shows signs of distress or developmental issues, you may need to work with a perinatologist or other fetal medicine specialist. In those cases, your obstetrician can refer you to a specialist and work with that professional to coordinate your care.

When the time comes to welcome your baby into the world, your expert obstetrician at My OB/GYN Specialists is available to deliver your child. Knowing that your delivery will be handled by the doctor you know and trust can provide a deep peace of mind during a high-risk pregnancy.
