After your baby is born, you’ll have access to the highest quality neonatal care and continuing support from your physician.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

Some women have a higher risk for complications during pregnancy than others. The number one factor that contributes to a high-risk pregnancy is a previous history of reproductive complications or miscarriages. Several other factors can also qualify you as high-risk, including:

  • Health conditions like diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disorders, kidney disease, asthma, heart disease, seizure disorder, autoimmune disorders, or a personal history of cancer
  • Being very young or over the age of 35
  • Having a history of or current diagnosis of gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, or pre-eclampsia
  • Being pregnant with multiples (twins, triplets, or a higher order multiple)
  • Uterine anomalies or uterine fibroids
  • Teratogen exposure (through certain prescription medications, narcotics, illicit drugs, or alcohol)

Your physician can evaluate and treat any issues that arise during a high-risk pregnancy. This might include consultations with a Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist.

Some complications may require bed rest or hospitalization, which gives your growing baby the time it needs to develop more fully.
