What are High-Risk Pregnancy Factors?

A high-risk pregnancy is determined by any conditions that may pose a threat throughout a pregnancy. This can include any pre-existing health factors as well as some high-risk factors that may develop during pregnancy.

Your pregnancy may be high-risk if:

  • You have high blood pressure
  • You are overweight or obese
  • You have an autoimmune disease or diabetes
  • You have multiple gestations (multiple births)
  • You are over the age of 35 or a younger teenager

When to Meet with a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist

If you have any high-risk pregnancy symptoms, your provider may suggest meeting with Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists. These specialists, called perinatologists, are specifically trained in treating high-risk pregnancies and ensuring that your experience is as safe and healthy as possible.

Throughout each phase of your pregnancy, our specialists will monitor your and your baby’s health, make recommendations for care, and determine the best delivery plan when the time comes.

If you experience any pre-existing health conditions or have questions about high-risk pregnancies, you’re welcome to meet with our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists before becoming pregnant to discuss your options.
