High Risk Obstetrics

Defining High Risk Pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy refers to a pregnancy where there is an increased chance of potential complications for you, your baby, or both, compared to a typical pregnancy. 

If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you will need careful monitoring and specialized prenatal care to ensure the well-being of both you and your baby. Regular prenatal visits, comprehensive screenings, and consultations with specialists are recommended to optimize outcomes and ensure a healthy pregnancy and childbirth.


Here are a few common reasons a pregnancy may be considered high risk:

  • Pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure
  • Advanced maternal age (35 years or older)
  • Obesity (BMI over 30)
  • Multiple pregnancies (twins or triplets)
  • History of previous pregnancy complications
