What are the risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy? explained by Dr. Urvashi Shah Gynecologist at Bodyline Hospital in Ahmedabad
A medical issue that existed prior to becoming pregnant can occasionally cause a high-risk pregnancy. In some situations, a pregnancy may become high risk due to a medical problem that manifests itself while you or your unborn child are pregnant.
Specifically, the following may increase the chance of high-risk pregnancy:
1.) Maternal age in her prime. Women over 35 have an increased likelihood of becoming pregnant.
2.) Choices of lifestyle. Pregnancy risk factors include consuming illegal substances, drinking alcohol, and smoking cigarettes.
3.) Obstetrical health issues. Pregnancy risks can be raised by conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, epilepsy, thyroid disease, blood or heart conditions, poorly controlled asthma, and infections.
4.) Obstetric complications There are hazards associated with a number of pregnancy problems. Examples include an abnormal placental position, foetal growth that is less than the 10th percentile for gestational age (foetal growth restriction), and rhesus (Rh) sensitization. This potentially dangerous condition can develop when your blood type is Rh negative and your unborn child’s blood type is Rh positive.
5.) Several pregnancies Women bearing multiple foetuses have increased pregnancy risks.
6.) Past pregnancies. Preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders associated with pregnancy enhance the likelihood of developing this condition in a subsequent pregnancy. You run a higher risk of giving birth early in your subsequent pregnancies if you gave birth prematurely during your previous pregnancy or have had many premature births. Tell your doctor everything you know about your entire obstetrical history.
