A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother or her fetus. It often requires specialized care from specially trained providers. Some pregnancies become high risk as they progress, while some women are at increased risk for complications even before they get pregnant for a variety of reasons. Early and regular prenatal care helps many women have healthy pregnancies and deliveries without complications.
Risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy can include:
Women with high-risk pregnancies should receive care from a special team of health care providers to ensure the best possible outcomes.
All babies born at Sumaa maternity will receive a full examination by a consultant paediatrician prior to discharge from the hospital. If you wish to have ongoing care for the baby privately, you will have the opportunity to discuss this with the doctor.
It is important that the mother and the baby continue to get the support in the postnatal period after they are discharged home from the hospital. After discharge from the hospital, you and the baby will be checked by the community midwife and the health visitor at your home.
Once your pregnancy is confirmed, it’s essential to see your GP or a midwife as soon as possible so you can schedule the needed appointments. Appointments during your pregnancy are called antenatal appointments or antenatal care.
