High Risk Pregnancy

Pregnancy in Diabetes

Treating diabetes before trying to conceive or getting pregnant is of prominent importance for the health of baby and mother. Babies born to the women suffering from diabetes are likely to face the risk of being grown larger than average due to excess of insulin or possess a birth defect. In addition, there is also a risk of developing a medical condition of pre-eclampsia which raises problems for baby by increasing the blood pressure.

Pregnancy in High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure during the pregnancy can put the mother as well as a baby at risk. High blood pressure during pregnancy can lead to the following complications:

For Mother:

  • Preeclampsia
  • Placental abruption
  • Injury to your other organs

For Baby:

  • Preterm delivery
  • Low birth weight

Pregnancy in Thyroid

Untreated thyroid related problems during the pregnancy can lead to various risks such as premature birth, miscarriage, preeclampsia (an abrupt rise in blood pressure), and low birth weight. Therefore, if the expectant mother is diagnosed with any of the issue related to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism it is essential to monitor the disease before pregnancy. Moreover, the proper medication should be taken to mitigate the issues arising due to the said medical condition.

Pregnancy with Kidney Diseases

Liver and kidney diseases during pregnancy are challenging clinical issues. Being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease before pregnancy poses the risk of unhealthy preterm growth of the baby. On the other hand, pregnancy in women with liver disease is very rare. Even if occurs there is a high risk of abortion, perinatal death, and prematurity.

Pregnancy with Epilepsy

Women with epilepsy can face a variety of complications during pregnancy. These complications can affect the baby in the following ways:

  • Preterm labor
  • Fetal injury
  • Decrease in fetal heart rate
  • Miscarriage due to trauma experienced during seizures
  • separation of the placenta from the uterus at a premature stage

Pregnancy with Previous Multiple Abortions

Prior multiple abortions may result in complications during the further pregnancies. However, there is no clear evidence regarding the link between previous abortions and pregnancy. If performed by a qualified practitioner then abortion should not affect one’s capability of getting pregnant again.

Pregnancy with Asthma

Well-Controlled asthma may not pose significant risks during pregnancy but if it is uncontrolled then you might come across serious complications. A poorly controlled may lead to the following complications:

  • High blood pressure and damage to other organs
  • Hindered fetal growth
  • Need for C- section delivery
  • Premature birth
  • Risk to life of baby

Pregnancy with Jaundice

Jaundice and pregnancy is a deadly combination, although very rare but has dire consequences. It provides a grave prognosis for both the mother and fetus. It is also accounted to cause 10 percent of maternal deaths. Therefore, the condition requires proper medication and early diagnosis along with careful management.
