High Risk Pregnancy

If your pregnancy is considered high risk, Desert West Obstetrics and Gynecology is here for you. High-risk pregnancy factors can include advanced maternal age of over 35, maternal health issues including diabetes or heart disorders, or pregnancy with twins or more.

If you know you’re in a high-risk category, you can schedule a preconception appointment with your Desert West doctor. Your doctor might advise you to start taking prenatal vitamins. Or if you have a medical condition, your treatment could be adjusted before pregnancy. Your Desert West doctor might also discuss your risks of having a baby with a genetic condition.

Throughout your pregnancy, your Desert West doctor will advise you of any needed tests or procedures. You might need more frequent appointments too.

The team at Desert West is here to support you throughout your pregnancy!
