What is a high-risk pregnancy?
A high-risk pregnancy includes any pregnancy where extra care is needed to ensure a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery of your baby. In many cases, a pregnancy is considered high-risk when you have existing chronic health issues that could affect you or your baby’s health, your pregnancy, or your delivery process.
Underlying issues that may make your pregnancy high-risk include:
- Thyroid disease
- High blood pressure
- Chronic kidney disease
Dr. Gabbay may also consider you a high-risk pregnancy if you are older than 35, or if you’ve experienced complications in other pregnancies. High-risk pregnancies are also common when you are carrying multiple babies.
If you develop conditions like preeclampsia during pregnancy, you may need specialized, high-risk pregnancy care.
How often do I need obstetric visits?
Throughout your pregnancy, you can expect to see Dr. Gabbay once a month for prenatal visits until you reach 28 weeks. You will then schedule visits every two weeks until you reach 36 weeks, when Dr. Gabbay will need to see you once a week until you’re ready to deliver.
If you’re high risk, you may need to schedule more frequent visits based on Dr. Gabbay’s recommendations.
During your prenatal visits, Dr. Gabbay evaluates the growth and development of your baby as well as your overall health. These visits are a great time to discuss any questions or concerns you have about your pregnancy or impending childbirth.
Dr. Gabbay also ensures that you have the resources you need to enjoy a healthy and happy pregnancy at each visit.
