Seek a high-risk pregnancy doctor

Similar to how people who take care of their bodies and still get sick, women can start out with a healthy pregnancy and develop an issue that makes it a high-risk pregnancy. Thus, even seeking regular obstetrician care for pregnancy is important to ensure the child is healthy. There are a variety of conditions and factors that can affect a pregnancy.

A high-risk pregnancy can occur from conditions that exist before or during the pregnancy. With this in mind, here are conditions that occur before a pregnancy and can result in a high-risk pregnancy:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Problems with the lung, kidney or heart
  • STDs
  • Chronic infections
  • Family history of miscarriages or high-risk pregnancy
  • Age of the mother-to-be
  • If the patient has any of these pre-existing conditions, then they need to call us to learn more about how they can protect the well-being of the child. Even the age of a woman can affect the pregnancy. Woman under the age of 17 or over the age of 35 at the time of delivery will have a greater chance of complications developing.

    Even if a woman is not pregnant yet and only considering pregnancy, they should schedule an appointment with us. We can examine their health, determine if there are any pre-existing factors to monitor and provide treatment.

    Issues can arise during the pregnancy

    Pregnancy takes a toll on the body, no matter how healthy or fit the mother-to-be is before the pregnancy. Since there is always a chance for an issue to develop, the mother-to-be needs professional obstetrician care. Various health issues and conditions that can occur during pregnancy include:

  • Anemia
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Depression
  • Pregnancy-related high blood pressure
  • Hyperemesis gravidarum
  • The placenta covering the opening of the cervix to cause vaginal bleeding
  • Toxemia (Preeclampsia)
  • While women can struggle with diabetes or high blood pressure issues before pregnancy, the pregnancy can also cause these conditions to develop in patients who never struggled with these issues before. Fortunately, we can help to treat these issues and ensure the mother-to-be has the necessary care to protect her and the child.
