Childbirth is one of the most exquisite and important stages of a couple's life. The birth of a child ushers in a slew of changes and miracles in the parents' lives.

The majority of mothers are fortunate enough to deliver their children without any problems or difficulties, but there are several factors that women must contend with during the childbirth process. These factors can trigger complications for the expecting mother during her pregnancy. As a result, it is important that the pregnant mother take good care and precautions during the pregnancy in order to deliver their child without complications.

A high risk pregnancy occurs when the pregnant mother is diagnosed with potential risks and complications that can affect the mother and the baby. This can also cause the newborn baby to be born with health conditions such as slow growth and leave a mother with a few complications that might cause trouble or problems in the long run.

What factors cause high risk during pregnancy in females?

The risk factors or causes of a high-risk pregnancy:

  • If your blood doesn’t clot properly – it’s a haematologist who will conduct the blood tests, confirm if you have haemophilia, and offer treatment.
  • When there’s an outbreak of infection in a hospital, it’s a medical microbiologist or infection doctor who will advise the infection control teams and work hard to contain it.
  • For those having trouble getting pregnant – it’s a reproductive scientist who will investigate, diagnose and, where possible, treat any infertility issues.
