If you visit OBGYN Dr. Reza Ahmadinia in the Apple Valley and Victorville area, and he states that your pregnancy is ‘high risk,’ there is a reason for concern. The first may be your age. If you’re a teenager or over the age of 35, you’re younger or older than the average mom, which comes with risks. Your weight may also have something to do with your pregnancy being called ‘high risk’ by Dr. Ahmadinia.
Potential Risks During Pregnancy
If you are underweight or overweight, it can cause complications while carrying and delivering a child. Other ‘high risk’ factors include pre-existing health conditions such as diabetes and cancer as well as instances where a woman is carrying multiple fetuses in her womb. All of these factors cause alarm and require extra monitoring from Dr. Ahmadinia to ensure a healthy pregnancy and no problems while delivering the child or children.
Alcohol and tobacco use also cause a pregnancy to be ‘high risk’. Knowing that risky behavior can cause a multitude of problems with your pregnancy, and the delivery of your baby or babies is a good reason to stop drinking and smoking. If you’re not sure if you can, make sure to mention this to your doctor so he can provide you with the resources you need.
