A high-risk pregnancy is one where there are complications during pregnancy or delivery that can adversely affect the health or life of either the mother or the fetus.
Some pregnancies may be at high risk, due to pre-existing health conditions, while others may start out normally, but become high risk during the course of the pregnancy. With the advanced obstetric care available nowadays it is quite possible to have an uneventful and safe pregnancy, even with high-risk medical conditions. This however needs close monitoring of the mother and the fetus. With innovative changes in the medical field, treatment for pregnancy complications is now made available.
