What is considered a high-risk pregnancy?

You may be in the high-risk pregnancy category if you or your baby (or both) have certain health conditions. Some risk factors that put you into the high-risk category include:

  • Your age — if you are a teenager or over 35 years old
  • Existing health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or asthma
  • History of uterine surgeries, including multiple Cesarean sections
  • You’re a smoker
  • You are pregnant with twins, triplets, or a higher order of multiples
  • Previous pregnancy complications, including miscarriage
  • Being underweight or overweight

You may also be in a high-risk pregnancy category if certain complications develop during your pregnancy such as:

  • Abnormal placenta position
  • Fetal growth abnormalities
  • Rh sensitization
  • Genetic issues

The team at OB/GYN Specialists provides expert care for all types of pregnancies with compassion, understanding, and the utmost value for every life.

What can I expect during my prenatal care?

The doctors ensure your health and your baby’s health through each phase of your prenatal care and delivery. At your pregnancy appointments, your doctor may recommend prenatal diagnostic testing including:

  • Ultrasound imaging
  • Fetal monitoring
  • Biophysical profile
  • Genetic testing
  • Gender identification
  • Nonstress test (fetal heart rate monitoring)

If necessary, the team recommends maternal-fetal medicine consult referrals so you get the highest quality of care for any potential conditions that may arise during pregnancy.
