High Risk
Pregnancy Care

A high-risk pregnancy is one that presents potential complications that could negatively impact the health of the mother, the baby, or both. Some common factors that can contribute to a pregnancy being classified as high risk include:

  • Maternal Age

    Women who are very young (under 17) or older (over 35) are at higher risk for complications such as gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, and chromosomal abnormalities.

  • Pre-existing Medical Conditions

    Chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune disorders, heart disease, kidney disease, and certain infections can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy.

  • Multiple Pregnancies

    Carrying twins, triplets, or higher-order multiples increases the risk of complications such as premature birth, low birth weight, and preeclampsia.

  • Previous Pregnancy Complications

    Women who have experienced complications in previous pregnancies, such as preterm birth, miscarriage, stillbirth, or gestational diabetes, may be at higher risk for recurrence in subsequent pregnancies.

  • Lifestyle Factors

    Factors such as smoking, drug use, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, and inadequate prenatal care can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy.

  • Genetic Factors

    Certain genetic conditions or family histories of genetic disorders may increase the risk of birth defects or genetic abnormalities in the baby.

  • Prenatal Care

    Through regular check-ups, ultrasounds, and screenings, we aim to identify any potential risks or complications early on and take proactive measures to address them.

  • Placental Disorders

    Conditions such as placenta previa (where the placenta partially or completely covers the cervix) or placental abruption (where the placenta separates from the uterine wall prematurely) can lead to serious complications, including heavy bleeding and fetal distress. To ensure the health and well-being of both mother and child throughout this delicate time, we create personalised care plans that address the specific needs and concerns of each patient.

  • Specialised Testing

    We offer a variety of specialised tests and screenings to assess the health and development of the baby, including genetic testing, fetal monitoring, and advanced imaging techniques. These tools allow us to detect any abnormalities or concerns and provide appropriate management and treatment options.

  • High-Risk Pregnancy Management

    For mothers with pre-existing medical conditions or those who develop complications during pregnancy, we provide specialised management and monitoring to optimise outcomes for both mother and baby. This may include medical interventions, lifestyle modifications, and close surveillance to mitigate risks and ensure the best possible outcome.

  • Perinatal Counseling and Support

    We understand that navigating a high-risk pregnancy can be emotionally challenging for expectant mothers and their families. That’s why we offer perinatal counselling and support services to help address concerns, alleviate anxiety, and provide resources and guidance every step of the way.
