A high-risk pregnancy means you have one or more issues that could lead to your baby having health problems or you experiencing complications during your pregnancy or delivery.
Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano may classify your pregnancy as high risk if you have gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, or eclampsia.
Sometimes, if you have high blood pressure or diabetes prior to conception, it's possible pregnancy will worsen your condition.
If you're a teenager, are pregnant for the first time after the age of 35, or are carrying multiple babies, you're more at risk for complications. Lifestyle factors like alcohol or drug use or smoking cigarettes can increase your risk as well.
At your appointments, Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano performs diagnostics like ultrasounds and monitoring your weight and vitals to detect possible complications early. She educates you about healthy eating habits and lifestyle changes you can make to prevent complications.
To ensure you have a safe delivery, she may schedule a Cesarean section to ensure the safety of you and your baby. During your delivery, she monitors your condition carefully and intervenes as necessary to encourage a safe delivery and prevent complications for your baby.
