High Risk Pregnancy Factors

A pregnancy may be considered high risk for many different reasons ranging from the need to monitor and manage your previous health conditions more closely during pregnancy to life-threatening conditions.

Some factors where you may benefit from having a maternal-fetal medicine specialist involved in your care include:

  • Age – if you are age 35 or over
  • Health complications – if you have high blood pressure, diabetes or other health conditions that need to be closely monitored during your pregnancy for your safety as well as your baby’s safety
  • Unexpected circumstances – these may arise during the course of your pregnancy, creating complications for your pregnancy and delivery
