High-Risk Pregnancy

Some pregnancies have complications. But don’t let the term ‘high risk’ scare you. Many times it simply means that certain conditions demand special attention during pregnancy. We’re here for you throughout your pregnancy to answer your questions and assure that you receive the best care possible for you and your baby.

Examples of high-risk pregnancies that need extra attention include:

  • Advanced maternal age (35+)
  • Evidence of twins, triplets, or other multiples
  • History of prior C-section, pre-term birth (before 37 weeks), or low birth weight
  • Family history of genetic conditions or miscarriages
  • Medical history of diabetes, epilepsy, high blood pressure
  • Lifestyle choices such as illegal drugs or alcohol
  • Complications that develop during pregnancy such as issues with the uterus, cervix, placenta, or amniotic fluid

We closely monitor all pregnancies so that we can focus attention as needed for the health of both mother and baby.

I have been coming to Dr Helliwell for 6 years. Always a friendly polite atmosphere very professional. You can obtain many services here in one office, I have gotten my Gynocologist and my asthetic beauty needs filled here at Advanced Womans Health center. I highly recommend Dr Jason Helliwell and the Womens Health Center.
