High Risk Pregnancy Care in Gurgaon
If you have a high risk pregnancy, you or your baby might be at increased risk of health problems before, during or after delivery. Typically, special monitoring or care throughout pregnancy is needed. You can consult with Dr. Deepti Asthana at Kalsoa Gynae Clinic. She is High Risk Pregnancy Care and Normal Delivery Specialist In Gurgaon, Delhi NCR.
What are the risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy?:
•Advanced maternal age. Pregnancy risks are higher for mothers older than age 35.
•Lifestyle choices. Smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and using illegal drugs can put a pregnancy at risk.
•Medical history. A history of chronic hypertension, diabetes, heart disorders, breathing problems such as poorly controlled asthma, infections, and blood-clotting disorders such as deep vein thrombosis can increase pregnancy risks.
•Surgical history. A history of surgery on your uterus, including multiple C-sections, multiple abdominal surgeries or surgery for uterine tumors (fibroids), can increase pregnancy risks.
•Pregnancy complications eg- an abnormal placenta position(placenta praevia), fetal growth retardation, Rh (rhesus) sensitization — a potentially serious condition that can occur when your blood group is Rh negative and your baby's blood group is Rh positive, pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) including pre eclampsia, pregnancy induced cholestasis etc
What steps can I take to promote a healthy pregnancy?
•Schedule a preconception appointment. If you're thinking about becoming pregnant, consult us. You would be counselled to start taking a daily prenatal vitamin with folic acid and reach a healthy weight before you become pregnant. If you have a medical condition, your treatment might need to be adjusted to prepare for pregnancy.
•Seek regular prenatal care. Prenatal visits can help monitor your health and your baby's health. Depending on the circumstances, you might be referred to a specialist in maternal-fetal medicine, genetics, pediatrics or other areas.
•Eat a healthy diet. During pregnancy, you'll need more folic acid, protein, calcium and iron. A daily prenatal vitamin can help fill any gaps.
•Gain weight wisely. Gaining the right amount of weight can support your baby's health — and make it easier to shed the extra pounds after delivery
Avoid risky substances. If you smoke, quit. Alcohol and illegal drugs are off-limits, too. Avoid any kind of teratogenic drugs.
