What Is a High-Risk Pregnancy?

A “high-risk pregnancy” is defined as a pregnancy in which a woman or her baby may have increased risk of health issues. While we address a wide variety of high-risk pregnancies at Arrowhead Women’s Center, the most common types of high-risk pregnancy include:

  • A woman who is younger than 17 years old
  • A woman who is older than 35 years old
  • Multiple pregnancies
  • A woman who has had recurrent miscarriages (more than 3)
  • A woman with certain infections including HIV or hepatitis C
  • A woman who has presented with issues during pregnancy in the past, such as preterm labor and preeclampsia
  • A woman with specific health issues such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.

When you visit Arrowhead Women’s Center for a consultation, we will discuss your personal pregnancy factors with you and identify if you might have a high-risk pregnancy. We will then consult with you about all of the ways that our team can keep you and your baby safe throughout your pregnancy. Contact us today to learn more about your own personal care throughout pregnancy.
