Should you worry about high-risk pregnancy?

The first thing you should know is that high-risk pregnancy is not as bad as it sounds. Many women have high-risk pregnancies. You are likely to be termed high-risk if:

  • You are 35 or older
  • You had a miscarriage or lost a baby shortly after birth
  • You are having twins or other multiple births
  • There is an abnormal amount of amniotic fluid
  • You have anemia, diabetes, epilepsy, high blood pressure or an infection
  • Fetal growth is slow
  • Your blood is Rh negative; baby's blood is Rh positive
  • You had a low birth-weight baby or birth before 37 weeks
  • There is a fetal genetic condition
  • Lifestyle choices – tobacco use, drinking alcohol & the use of non-prescribed drugs

Don’t be alarmed if you are told that your pregnancy is high-risk. We will simply monitor your pregnancy more closely, and your chances of delivering a healthy baby are extremely high. 

We understand that potential complications can be daunting and scary. That is why our providers will spend time with each and every patient to explain options and map out a care plan that is unique to every patient. Our main goal is a healthy baby and mom.

"Outstanding staff and medical professionals. Even though I was the last patient of the day, I did not feel rushed. The doctor and nurse seemed to work together to secure my records and explain the outcomes of some testing. I feel very confident that my health is in good hands."
