Infertility and High-Risk Pregnancy

Every woman is at risk of complications during her pregnancy, but some factors make it higher than others. A high-risk pregnancy has an increased risk of complications for the mother or child. Some markers include pre-existing medical conditions, a history of certain pregnancy complications, carrying more than one baby, and age. Additional testing, monitoring, and/or specialist care are often considered when women meet these criteria.

Risk Factors

High-risk pregnancies can represent a great challenge for both the patient and the care provider. A variety of risk factors should be carefully considered when assessing a pregnant woman, such as:
Pre-existing medical conditions: Pregnancy risks can be raised by conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, epilepsy, thyroid illness, blood or heart conditions, poorly managed asthma, and infections.
Age: Women less than 20 and over 35 have an increased likelihood of carrying high Risk Pregnancy.
Lifestyle: Pregnancy risk factors include obesity, consuming illicit substances, drinking alcohol, and smoking cigarettes.
Understanding these and other risk factors can help women take better care of themselves throughout their pregnancy and have healthy, safe deliveries.

Causes

Maternal age: Women over the age of 35 are considered to be at higher risk for pregnancy complications.
Chronic health conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease can increase the risk of pregnancy complications.
Obesity: Being overweight or obese can increase the risk of pregnancy complications, such as gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia.
Multiple gestation: Pregnant women carrying more than one fetus are at higher risk for complications such as preterm labor and birth.
Previous pregnancy complications: Women with a history of preterm labor, stillbirth, or other pregnancy complications are at higher risk for similar problems in future pregnancies.
Structural abnormalities: Abnormalities of the uterus, cervix, or placenta can increase the risk of pregnancy complications.
Infections: Certain infections, such as rubella, cytomegalovirus, and toxoplasmosis, can increase the risk of birth defects or pregnancy complications.
Substance abuse: The use of drugs or alcohol during pregnancy can increase the risk of birth defects and other pregnancy complications.

Diagnosis

High-risk pregnancy is diagnosed based on a variety of factors, including:
Maternal medical history: A review of the woman’s medical history, including any pre-existing conditions or previous pregnancy complications, can help determine if she is at higher risk for pregnancy complications.
Physical examination: A thorough physical examination can help identify any potential health problems or physical conditions that may increase the risk of pregnancy complications.
Laboratory tests: Blood tests, urine tests, and other laboratory tests can help identify any underlying health conditions or infections that may increase the risk of pregnancy complications.
Ultrasound: An ultrasound is used to evaluate the pregnancy and check for any structural abnormalities or growth problems.
Genetic testing: Genetic testing, such as chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis, can help identify any genetic abnormalities or birth defects.
Monitoring of fetal wellbeing: Regular monitoring of the fetus, including non-stress tests and biophysical profiles, can help assess the health and wellbeing of the baby and detect any potential problems.
Specialty consultations: In some cases, a woman may be referred to a specialist, such as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, for further evaluation and management of a high-risk pregnancy.
