High Risk Pregnancy Q & A

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

Your pregnancy is usually considered high-risk if your health or the health of your baby is at risk. Some of the most common reasons a pregnancy is considered high-risk are:

  • Teen pregnancy
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Obesity
  • Previous pregnancy complications
  • If you’re carrying multiple babies
  • If you smoke

Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is a condition involving high blood pressure and, in some cases, signs of damage to certain organ systems like the liver and kidneys.

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy and affects how your body uses blood sugar (glucose).

Placenta previa

Placenta previa is a condition where the placenta lies low in the uterus and completely or partially covers the cervix.

What services are available for a high-risk pregnancy?

Aspen Medical Group, Inc. provides various services for high-risk pregnancies. With a high-risk pregnancy, you should expect to see your Aspen provider more frequently for evaluations and monitoring.

Throughout your pregnancy, you might need different types of screenings, such as ultrasounds or bloodwork, to monitor your health and your baby’s development and growth. Aspen Medical Group, Inc. offers 3D and 4D ultrasounds, genetic screenings, fetal heart rate monitoring, and more.

Your Aspen provider creates a personalized treatment plan focused on preventing health complications like preeclampsia.

The team at Aspen Medical Group, Inc. also works closely with other providers, like labor coaches, to establish a plan for your labor and delivery.

Can I prevent a high-risk pregnancy?

Your genetic makeup is one factor that is out of your control, but you can work with your Aspen provider before becoming pregnant to reduce your risk factors and improve your overall health.

Aspen Medical Group, Inc. provides a range of women’s health services to prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy. Your provider can give you recommendations for lifestyle changes, like eating better and quitting smoking.

With a high-risk pregnancy, you’ll need special prenatal care to monitor your and your baby’s health closely.

If your risks are too high or you’re unable to get pregnant, other options are available. Aspen Medical Group, Inc. can help you decide if surrogacy is the best option for you. A surrogate is a woman who carries a pregnancy for a couple or another person. 

There are different types of surrogacy: traditional surrogacy when the surrogate has a genetic tie to the child and gestational surrogacy when the surrogate doesn’t have a genetic tie to the child. Surrogacy usually involves artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization (IVF).
