High-Risk Pregnancy

Silly question

What defines high-risk? Is age by itself high risk ? (I'm 35)

Re: Silly question

  • Not just age but if you're having multiples, some kind of illness/ condition (like [gestational] diabetes, cervical insufficiency, hypertension) that may threaten the mother's and/ or baby's life, previous pregnancy issues, a history of genetic issues and a few others I can't recall.
    Nutmeg, cilantro, sage, mint, thyme... these are a few of my favorite things! Visit The Nest!Visit The Nest! We have four children; one left us too soon.
  • I'm just lurking this morning, but I'm high risk because I had a late loss with my last pregnancy

  • As posted below, it is not age, but other health conditions that make you high risk.  It does hurt my feelings that one of the diagnosis codes on my chart is advanced maternal age.
