There are several situations where women are at risk of having complications during pregnancy by factors such as age of the pregnant woman, history and pre-existing medical problems. Pregnancy can be termed high risk if the expecting mother has certain medical issues like diabetes, hypertension, thyroid problems, PCOS, obesity, fibroids, and HIV/AIDS. Women with these and other medical problems are seen in a multidisciplinary setting along with physicians.
Approximately 3% of our annual pregnancies are complicated and high-risk, and sometimes require specialized and concentrated care to protect the lives of both mother and baby. From the pre-pregnancy maternal evaluation through a detailed fetal assessment to ongoing perinatal care, our comprehensive team diligently assesses all risk factors. We are committed to providing the best care to every mother and baby with the assistance of neonatologists, obstetric anesthesiologists, critical care physicians and nurses.
Furthermore, specialized investigation and treatment are offered to those with repeated abortions, and women who've had one or more caesarean sections in the past. Such women are encouraged to opt for normal delivery and are given every possible care necessary to identify any problem at the earliest so that appropriate intervention is carried out.
