Share this:

A high-risk pregnancy refers to anything that puts the mother or fetus at increased risk for poor health during pregnancy or childbirth. A pregnancy is considered high risk if the mother has chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or if she weighs too much or too little. Any pregnancy where complications are more likely than normal is considered a high-risk pregnancy.
