Last Update: 03/04/2022

A high-risk pregnancy is a pregnancy in which the woman has an increased risk of presenting complications during gestation, and therefore requires greater control by specialists during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Thus, an attempt will be made to prevent the appearance of these complications, to keep them under control, or to detect them early, in order to avoid problems for the woman or the baby.

Although care should be personalized according to the particular situation of the pregnant woman, in this type of pregnancy physical activity is often limited and rest is recommended. In addition, it will be essential to attend all the appointments scheduled by the specialist.
