I have many years of experience and great expertise in the medical support of high-risk pregnancies and can offer my patients the assurance that you and your baby are cared for on the highest medical level – thereby the pregnancy becomes a lovely experience – despite the increased risk and/or a certain primary disease.
A high-risk pregnancy means that there are certain anamnestic risk factors in the medical history of the mother-to-be, which considerably increase the possibility of complications during the pregnancy.
Possible risk constellations are for example gestational diabetes and preeclampsia, as well as pregnancies with diabetes or high blood pressure (as a preliminary disease), diseases of kidney, liver, heart and thyroid, autoimmune diseases, coagulation disorders, hepatitis, HIV and other infection diseases, obesity, etc....
Also older mothers-to-be, repeated miscarriages, multiple pregnancies and complications during a previous birth can increase the risk of complications during the pregnancy.
For the pregnant woman, a high-risk pregnancy especially means that a close medical monitoring is necessary during the pregnancy.
However, the determination of a high-risk pregnancy does not automatically mean that there are definitely going to be complications during the pregnancy. Thanks to the exact knowledge about potential risk factors and by proactive, careful planning and exact medication, also women suffering from a certain underlying disease can give birth to a healthy baby.
Those who consequently follow important recommendations can even enjoy a lovely and carefree pregnancy – despite the increased risk.
The exact monitoring of a high-risk pregnancy and determining which additional examinations are necessary, depends on the existing underlying disease and other individual questions.
As your treating doctor it is very important to me to always be one step ahead – thereby complications can either be avoided in the first place or diagnosed and treated early, so they do not affect the wellbeing of mother and child.
