Pregnancy can come with a wave of anticipation, excitement, and uncertainty, amidst a strong maternal instinct to protect the life growing inside of one’s body. At Michelle Trandai MD in Chicago, IL, we empathize with the stress that a high risk pregnancy can cause, which is why our medical team is proud to provide compassionate and first-rate care to expecting mothers in order to ensure a safe and healthy birth experience for both the mother and the baby.
If you are dealing with a high risk pregnancy, it can be intimidating to try to manage it on your own. As such, it is important to find a skilled and caring obstetrician-gynecologist (OBGYN) who can closely monitor the progression of your pregnancy and guide it to a successful birth. An OBGYN can help you know the precise lifestyle accommodations you should implement to minimize any risks associated with your pregnancy. Such lifestyle accommodations and changes could include any of the following:
– Avoiding medications or substances that could pose a risk to your pregnancy
– Eating a nutritious diet, with particular attention to vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that support the development of the baby
– Exercising according to your OBGYN’s recommendations
– Gaining and maintaining a proper amount of weight
– Limiting caffeine intake
– Making sure that you have a strong emotional support system of friends, family, and healthcare providers
– Prioritizing self-care and listen to your body
– Taking care of your mental health
– Taking supplemental vitamins or medicines to enhance both your health and that of the baby
Since there can be several different reasons for why a person is considered to be experiencing a high risk pregnancy, the treatment or management plan will ultimately depend on the precise cause of concern with each high risk pregnancy case.
When a person is in a high risk pregnancy, it means that they are at higher risk than average of experiencing a miscarriage, stillbirth, or health complications due to such things as age, underlying medical conditions, or a history of pregnancy complications. With that in mind, you may be considered to be in a high risk pregnancy if you bear any of the following risk factors while pregnant:
– Abnormalities in the structure of the cervix, placenta, or uterus
– Family history of genetic conditions
– Heart conditions
– High blood pressure
-History of complicated pregnancies, including preterm labor, preeclampsia, cesarean delivery, miscarriages, or previous children with genetic conditions
– Kidney disease
– Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
– Pregnant with multiple children
– Rh sensitization
– Under 17 or over 35 years old
