High-risk pregnancy: Know what to expect
You might have many questions if you have high-risk pregnancy like will your baby be okay? Will you need special care?
A high-risk pregnancy might pose challenges before, during or after delivery. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you and your baby might need special care throughout your pregnancy. A pregnancy is considered high risk when there are pre-existing & problematic medical conditions such as multiple births, a history of miscarriages or abnormal pregnancies, high blood pressure etc. Routine screenings such as blood test and ultrasound helps to identify whether a pregnancy is high risk or not.

- Decreased fetal movement
- burning sensations while urinating
- Vaginal bleeding, watery vaginal discharge
