Reasons for high risk obstetrics
Medical Conditions A high risk pregnancy can be a function of a mother’s pre-existing medical condition or result from developments during the pregnancy. Underlying conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, epilepsy or anemia, can also increase pregnancy risks.
Advanced Maternal Age High risk pregnancies are more common for mothers aged 40 and older.
Complications Complications which develop during the pregnancy such as problems with the uterus, cervix or placenta, or fetal environment, can all increase pregnancy risks.
Past Obstetrical History Prior C-sections, a history of pregnancy loss, low birth weight baby or preterm birth (a birth before 37 weeks of pregnancy), and antibody development are some factors that may increase the risks for subsequent all pregnancies.
Lifestyle Choices While a pregnancy can be put at risk through tobacco use, alcohol use, administration of illegal drugs, and poor diet choices, Huey and Weprin can help you to address these issues to help ensure the best outcome for you and your baby.
Multiple Pregnancies Carrying twins or higher order multiples increases pregnancy risks.
