A pregnancy is considered high-risk when there are potential problems that could affect the mother, baby, or both.
The health risks could affect
The mother before pregnancy;
Both the mother and baby during pregnancy, during delivery or after delivery.
High-risk pregnancy management requires 24 hours access to a multi-disciplinary team of experienced obstetricians, nurses, anesthesiologists, neonatologists and other specialists dedicated to the care of the mother and the baby.
