High risk pregnancy
A high-risk pregnancy is one in which the mother and/or fetus are at higher risk for problems during pregnancy or labor than in a typical pregnancy. Risk factors include existing health conditions, such as high blood pressure, pregnancy induced hypertension, pre- eclampsia, diabetes, heart & kidney problems, anaemia, thyroid disorders, twins, obesity, old maternal age, history of multiple abortions or preterm births.
In India about 20-30% pregnancies belong to high risk category, which is responsible for 75% of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Early detection and effective management of high risk pregnancy can contribute substantially in reduction of maternal and foetal adverse outcomes. We ensure that women with high-risk pregnancies receive care from a special team of doctors to ensure the best possible outcomes.
