Most pregnancies have a happy ending—a healthy baby and healthy mother. But some women have a high risk of complications.
This includes women with diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, kidney or heart disease, epilepsy or those who are severely underweight or overweight, or who drink, use drugs or smoke.
You may also be at high risk if you’re younger than 17, older than 35 or having more than one baby.
If you’ve had miscarriages or pre-term labor or premature rupturing of the membranes, or if your baby isn’t growing as expected, you may also be at risk for complications.
Knowing your risk helps us lower your risk. We’ll monitor and work with you closely throughout your entire pregnancy and beyond. Your safety and your baby’s safety are always top of mind.
