If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you and your child may have a higher risk of developing medical problems before or after the birth, as well as during the delivery.
Sometimes, the risk factors emerge before, but other times only during the pregnancy.
It is important to understand the risk factors and what you can do to help yourself and your child. Some risk factors cannot be changed (e.g., age and genetics), though they can be often mitigated and even prevented during preparation for a pregnancy (e.g., lose excess weight, find the right therapy for chronic diseases together with your doctor) or during the pregnancy (e.g., follow a particular diet, regularly take medications prescribed by your doctor, measure the blood pressure and perform glucose level self-tests). Usually, special care or monitoring is required during the entire pregnancy though good understanding of the problem and the right approach takes you half way to the success.
