A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother or her fetus. At Palmars Hospital, it often requires specialized care from our specially trained and experienced high-risk pregnancy team. This includes maternal-fetal and newborn medicine specialists, fetal surgeons and pediatric specialists who care for women and their babies from preconception through pregnancy, delivery and beyond.
Early and regular prenatal care helps many women have healthy pregnancies and deliveries without complications.
*Risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy can include:
- Existing health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or being HIV-positive.
- Overweight and obesity. Obesity increases the risk for high blood pressure, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, stillbirth, neural tube defects, and cesarean delivery. NICHD researchers have found that obesity can raise infants’ risk of heart problems at birth by 15%.
- Multiple births. The risk of complications is higher in women carrying more than one fetus (twins and higher-order multiples). Common complications include preeclampsia, premature labor, and preterm birth. More than one-half of all twins and as many as 93% of triplets are born at less than 37 weeks’ gestation.
- Young or old maternal age. Pregnancy in teens and women age 35 or older increases the risk for preeclampsia and gestational high blood pressure.
