High-Risk Pregnancy

New York High Risk PregnancyEvery pregnancy has some risks, but there are more dangers to your health and the health of your fetus with a high-risk pregnancy. At INTERCOUNTY OB/GYN in Ridgewood, NY, we strive to provide you with excellent pre-natal care to help detect and treat whatever risks arise. There are several causes that can attribute to a high-risk pregnancy, such as:

  • Being pregnant with more than one baby
  • Previous pregnancy complications
  • Being over the age of 35
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney problems
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Other conditions that occur while you are pregnant like gestational diabetes


Receiving pre-natal care is a especially important for women with high-risk pregnancies. You may need to receive more ultrasounds, tests, and office visits than women without high-risk pregnancy do. Depending on your OB/GYN, they may refer you to a high-risk maternal and fetal medicine specialist. You may also need to have a C-section or be induced for labor.

For more information about high-risk pregnancies, please call 718-497-3045 for a consultation.
