Precious & High-Risk Pregnancies

Any pregnancy after a long wait carries a major risk factor but is considered a precious pregnancy. Conversely, a high-risk pregnancy amplifies health hazards for both mother and fetus, necessitating special care and attention. While every pregnancy entails risks, proactive measures can mitigate complications. It’s important to note that having a precious or high-risk pregnancy doesn’t guarantee problems for you or the fetus. Many individuals have had successful pregnancies despite these classifications, with the only downside being heightened stress.

What are the Risk Factors of Precious and High-Risk Pregnancies?

We have differentiated the risk factors associated with precious pregnancies and high-risk pregnancies. 

Risk Factors of Precious Pregnancies

  • If you are above 40, the pregnancy becomes precious as the chances of getting the genetic disease and miscarriages increase.
  • If you are suffering from hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, etc., you are at high risk of a precious pregnancy.
  • If you have gestational hypertension or gestational diabetes, you must be more careful.
  • There might be a high risk of foetal complications in previous pregnancies. Thus, getting your regular tests and ultrasounds done at Giggles Hospitals are important. 

Risk Factors of High-Risk Pregnancies

  • If you are under 18 or above 35. 
  • If you are overweight or underweight.
  • If you have hypertension, diabetes, or other health conditions.
  • Had complications with a previous pregnancy, like premature birth.

How is Precious and High-Risk Pregnancy Diagnosed?

 Our Doctors at Giggle Hospitals, Best Women And Children Hospital in Kukatpally will talk about any complications you face during your past pregnancies, medical history, etc. After the consultation, you will be asked to undergo the following tests –

  • Blood and urine tests to check the genetic or congenital conditions risk.
  • Ultrasonography to check the foetus’ health.
  • The biophysical profile involves breathing, movement, and amniotic fluid using ultrasound. 

How are Precious and High-Risk Pregnancies Managed at Gynecology Hospitals

Precious and high-risk pregnancies management plans include –

  • Follow up with your obstetrician.
  • Consult with a notable maternal-foetal medicine specialist. 
  • Frequent ultrasound and foetal evaluation.
  • Monitoring blood pressure and blood sugar.
  • Taking medicines on time.

If you or your baby is in danger, they might recommend you for C-Section delivery. This is done especially when there is a risk of preeclampsia, feta complication, multiple pregnancies, and gestational diabetes. Getting a C-section delivery if you are above 40 is also advised. 

At Giggles Hospitals, our High risk pregnancy doctors will evaluate your condition and recommend a caesarean section if highly needed. Else, we believe in having a normal vaginal delivery. 

Tips for Healthy Pregnancy

Some of the important tips for healthy pregnancies are as follows –

  • See your doctors at the early stages of pregnancy. 
  • Eat a healthy diet. Include more green veggies, nuts, dry fruits, whole grains, lean meat, etc. 
  • Doctors at Giggle Hospitals advise you to exercise depending on your condition.
  • Wash your hands regularly, and keep yourself protected from infections.
