What makes a pregnancy high-risk?

A high-risk pregnancy describes any pregnancy that puts a mother or her baby at special risk for health problems before, during, or after delivery.

A common factor for high-risk pregnancies is age. Mothers who are 35 or older and those who are younger than 20 might be at increased risk for pregnancy complications.

Other factors that can make a pregnancy high-risk include:

  • Twins and other multiple babies
  • History of pregnancy complications
  • Previous miscarriages or stillbirths
  • Chronic health issues in the mother such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Alcohol or drug use

Dr. Ringhoffer provides highly personalized pregnancy care for expectant mothers with a high-risk pregnancy, including more frequent checkups, genetic testing, and assistance in the management of diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic health issues.
