A high-risk pregnancy is one where the mother or baby has an increased risk for a health problem. Existing health problems, age, lifestyle factors, and conditions of pregnancy increase the chances of a high-risk pregnancy. High-risk pregnancies can end in birth defects or serious health conditions for the mother or her baby.
There are many reasons someone might need high-risk obstetric services like those provided by Dr. J. David Edwards. In some cases, parents have experience pregnancy loss in the past, are pregnant with multiple babies, have an underlying disease such as diabetes or high blood pressure, have a family or personal history, or are older.

In other cases, parents just need a little reassurance.
