High Risk Pregnancy Q & A

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy is where pre-existing or new medical problems complicate your pregnancy, labor, and delivery. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you need special care throughout your pregnancy. 

Nile Women's Health Care treats women who face all types of challenges during their pregnancy to help them have a healthy baby. 

When is a pregnancy high risk?

Many factors can contribute to risk levels during your pregnancy. Some of the most common include:

  • Young maternal age (under 17)
  • Advanced maternal age (age over 35)
  • Diabetes in pregnancy
  • High blood pressure in pregnancy
  • Smoking, alcohol use, or illegal drug use during pregnancy
  • Multiple pregnancies — carrying twins, triplets, or more babies
  • History of preeclampsia
  • History of miscarriages
  • History of premature birth
  • Rh incompatibility —  you have Rh-negative blood, and your baby has an Rh-positive blood type

Other factors, including chronic health issues and new ones that suddenly appear, can increase your risk of pregnancy complications. You could potentially start a pregnancy healthy and then develop issues that classify your pregnancy as high-risk later. 

What kind of treatment do I need for a high-risk pregnancy?

With a high-risk pregnancy, you need more frequent appointments at Nile Women's Health Care. The exact schedule can vary based on your needs, but a typical plan might require biweekly visits, then weekly visits as you get close to delivery. 

You'll have urine tests, blood tests, glucose checks, heart rate checks, ultrasounds, and Nuchal translucency scans, along with other tests to monitor your health and your baby's health. 

You may also need special tests such as: 

  • Specialized ultrasound to check for specific abnormalities
  • Genetic screening (chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis)
  • Ultrasound to check for preterm labor risk
  • Biophysical profile to evaluate overall baby health

Nile Women's Health Care monitors every aspect of your pregnancy and provides the customized support you need throughout your pregnancy. This includes nutritional guidance, exercise recommendations, medication support, and guidance of all types.
