Introduction to High-Risk Pregnancies

A high-risk pregnancy involves increased health risks for the pregnant person, fetus, or both. These risks may be due to factors in the pregnancy, such as multiple births or preterm labor, or they may stem from preexisting maternal medical conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or lupus.

Factors contributing to High-Risk Pregnancies


here are some of the factors that can contribute to a high-risk pregnancy, in short:

  • Women with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
  • Multiple births:Women who are carrying twins, triplets, or more.
  • Advanced maternal age:Women who are over 35 or under 17 when they become pregnant.
  • Low-lying placenta:The placenta is blocking the cervix.
  • Preeclampsia:High blood pressure, protein in the urine, and swelling.
  • Gestational diabetes:The body's inability to produce or use insulin properly.
  • Infections:HIV, rubella, and cytomegalovirus.
  • Abuse:Physical or emotional abuse during pregnancy.
  • Substance use : Drugs or alcohol during pregnancy.
  • Poor nutrition:Not getting enough nutrients during pregnancy.

If you have any concerns, please talk to your doctor. Feel free to visit at Borneo Hospital.

Diagnostic tests and screenings for identifying and managing risks

Some of the diagnostic tests and screenings that are commonly used during pregnancy:

  • Prenatal screenings:These are tests that are used to assess the overall health of the mother and the fetus. They include blood tests, ultrasound scans, and genetic screenings.
  • Genetic screenings:These tests identify genetic disorders and chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. They include carrier screening, non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT), and amniocentesis.
  • Ultrasound scans:These scans are used to monitor fetal growth, check for any abnormalities or structural defects, and evaluate the placenta and amniotic fluid levels.
  • Maternal blood tests:These tests identify any maternal health issues that may affect the pregnancy. They include complete blood count (CBC), blood typing, and tests for infectious diseases.
  • Glucose screening and tolerance tests:These tests are performed to diagnose gestational diabetes.
  • Preeclampsia screenings:These tests identify preeclampsia, a condition that can pose risks to both the mother and the baby. They involve blood pressure monitoring, urine tests for protein levels, and blood tests to assess liver and kidney function.
  • Doppler ultrasound:This test assesses blood flow to the placenta and the fetus.
  • Non-stress tests (NST) and biophysical profiles (BPP):These tests are performed to evaluate fetal well-being.
  • Group B Streptococcus (GBS) screening:This test is done during late pregnancy to identify if the mother carries this bacteria, which can be transmitted to the baby during birth.
