High Risk Pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy refers to a pregnancy in which the health of the mother or baby is at risk due to pre-existing medical conditions or complications that arise during pregnancy. Some of the factors that can contribute to a high-risk pregnancy include:

Maternal age:Women who are younger than 17 or older than 35 years old are considered to have high-risk pregnancies.

Pre-existing medical conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disorders, and autoimmune disorders can complicate pregnancy and increase the risk of complications.

Multiple pregnancies:Women carrying twins, triplets, or more have a higher risk of complications.

Previous pregnancy complications: Women who have had miscarriages, stillbirths, preterm births, or other complications in previous pregnancies are at higher risk for similar complications in subsequent pregnancies.

Lifestyle factors: Smoking, alcohol and drug use, and poor nutrition can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy.

Fetal abnormalities:Some fetal abnormalities can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy and delivery.

Infections: Certain infections such as HIV, hepatitis B, and Zika virus can pose risks to the health of the mother and baby during pregnancy.

It is important for women with high-risk pregnancies to receive appropriate medical care and monitoring throughout their pregnancy to manage any potential complications and improve outcomes for both the mother and baby.
