What is a High Risk Pregnancy?

Pregnancies are considered to be high risk if the mother or child has an increased chance of a health problem. There are many factors that may make a pregnancy high risk. And while it sounds alarming, it is a way for doctors to provide special attention for you and your baby throughout the pregnancy. This way, your doctor will be able to watch your pregnancy very closely to catch any potential problems early on. 

There are certain conditions that can put you and your baby at higher risk for certain problems, such as slowed growth for the baby, preterm labor, and more. However, when pregnancies are termed “high risk,” it does not always mean that there will be a problem with the mother or baby.

For instance, certain health conditions may put the pregnancy at high risk, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Epilepsy
  • Kidney disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Obesity
  • Young or old maternal age
  • Alcohol use
  • Drug use
  • Tobacco use

Dr. Ronald E. de la Peña is an experienced and knowledgeable high risk pregnancy specialist. It is important to find a doctor who can provide the specialized care and resources necessary to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your child.
