Becoming a mother is one of the most special experiences in a woman’s life. The health and well-being of the fetus during the pregnancy and of the baby after giving birth depends on the health of the mother. This can be ensured through regular antenatal care. In the absence of regular health check-ups, the safety of the mother and the child may be compromised and a condition known as high-risk pregnancy may set in.
What is High-Risk Pregnancy?
A high-risk pregnancy is one where the health of the mother or her fetus is endangered due to some potential complications which require intervention from specialists to ensure the best possible outcome for both the mother and the child. Such complications can arise due to unforeseen illnesses or preexisting diseases.
