High-risk obstetrics involves managing pregnancies that present more challenges and potential complications than typical pregnancies. This specialized care is crucial for ensuring the mother’s and baby’s health and safety when risk factors are identified.

Pregnancy is classified as high-risk when there are potential health risks that could affect the mother, the baby, or both. 

High-risk factors can include maternal age (such as pregnancies in women over the age of 35), medical conditions present before pregnancy like hypertension or diabetes, conditions that develop during pregnancy like preeclampsia, or carrying multiples such as twins or triplets. 

Additionally, a history of preterm labor, recurrent pregnancy loss, or previous pregnancy complications also categorizes as a high-risk pregnancy .

Our clinic’s obstetricians are highly trained in high-risk obstetrics and are equipped with the expertise and technology to manage these complex cases. Care strategies for high-risk pregnancies include:

  • Frequent monitoring: Increased prenatal visits allow for continual monitoring of the mother’s and baby’s health. This includes regular ultrasound exams to monitor fetal development and specialized tests like non-stress and biophysical profiles to ensure the baby remains healthy.
  • Individualized management plans: Our obstetrician doctors develop personalized management plans based on the specific risk factors associated with each pregnancy. These plans include medication management, lifestyle adjustments, and dietary recommendations to address individual health needs.
  • Collaboration with specialists: Our team often collaborates with other medical specialists to provide comprehensive care covering all health aspects that might affect pregnancy outcomes. This interdisciplinary approach ensures all potential health issues are managed proactively.

Our approach to high-risk obstetrics is proactive and patient-focused. We prioritize open communication, helping you understand your condition and the steps we take to manage your care. This includes discussing the reasons behind each test or procedure, the results, and how decisions regarding your care are made.

By combining advanced medical technology with compassionate, individualized care, our obstetricians strive to minimize risks and ensure the best outcomes for you and your baby. We aim to navigate these high-risk situations with utmost care and professionalism, giving each patient the attention and support needed throughout their pregnancy journey.
