Good prenatal care will help to identify the potential for high-risk pregnancy. Health care providers will ask a woman about her medical history and will perform assessments to determine whether she is likely to experience a high-risk pregnancy based on her risk factors. Ongoing monitoring of physical health and personal habits will help a health care provider identify problems that develop during pregnancy.

A woman with a high-risk pregnancy will also likely receive care from a special team of health care providers throughout the pregnancy to ensure that she carries the fetus or fetuses to term.
