Home care of high risk pregnant women by advanced practice nurses: nurse time consumed. (1/421)

This study examined the time spent by advanced practice nurses (APNs) in providing prenatal care to women with high risk pregnancies. The results indicate that the overall mean APN time spent in providing prenatal care was 51.3 hours per woman. The greatest amount of time was spent in the clinic and women with pregestational diabetes consumed the most APN time and required the most contacts. Historically, home care services have been measured by number of visits or contacts. This study assists home care nurses and administrators to consider additional measurements including time spent.  (+info)

Fetal growth rate and adverse perinatal events. (2/421)

OBJECTIVE: To study fetal weight gain and its association with adverse perinatal events in a serially scanned high-risk population. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 200 pregnant women considered at increased risk of uteroplacental insufficiency had a total of 1140 scans in the third trimester, with a median of six scans in each pregnancy. The average fetal growth rate was retrospectively calculated for the last 6 weeks to birth, and expressed as daily weight gain in grams per day. Adverse pregnancy outcome was defined as operative delivery for fetal distress, acidotic umbilical artery pH (< 7.15), or admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). RESULTS: Fetuses with normal outcome in this high-risk pregnancy population had an average antenatal growth rate of 24.2 g/day. Compared to pregnancies with normal outcome, the growth rate was slower in those that required operative delivery for fetal distress (20.9 g/day, p < 0.05) and those that required admission to the NICU (20.3 g/day, p < 0.05). The growth rate in pregnancies resulting in acidotic umbilical artery pH also seemed lower, but this did not reach statistical significance. CONCLUSIONS: Impaired fetal weight gain prior to birth is associated with adverse perinatal events suggestive of growth failure.  (+info)

Can transvaginal fetal biometry be considered a useful tool for early detection of skeletal dysplasias in high-risk patients? (3/421)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possibility of an early diagnosis of skeletal dysplasias in high-risk patients. METHODS: A total of 149 consecutive, uncomplicated singleton pregnancies at 9-13 weeks' amenorrhea, with certain menstrual history and regular cycles, were investigated with transvaginal ultrasound to establish the relationship between femur length and menstrual age, biparietal diameter and crown-rump length, using a polynomial regression model. A further eight patients with previous skeletal dysplasias in a total of 13 pregnancies were evaluated with serial examinations every 2 weeks from 10-11 weeks. RESULTS: A significant correlation between femur length and crown-rump length and biparietal diameter was found, whereas none was observed between femur length and menstrual age. Of the five cases with skeletal dysplasias, only two (one with recurrent osteogenesis imperfecta and one with recurrent achondrogenesis) were diagnosed in the first trimester. CONCLUSIONS: An early evaluation of fetal morphology in conjunction with the use of biometric charts of femur length against crown-rump length and femur length against biparietal diameter may be crucial for early diagnosis of severe skeletal dysplasias. By contrast, in less severe cases, biometric evaluation appears to be of no value for diagnosis.  (+info)

Fetal yawning activity in normal and high-risk fetuses: a preliminary observation. (4/421)

OBJECTIVE: To study yawning activity in healthy fetuses and in fetuses at high risk. METHODS: Yawning activity was studied in 16 healthy and 22 high-risk fetuses. Studies were performed in the postprandial state at 09.00 and 12.00 in a quiet room with the woman in the lateral recumbent position. All ultrasound examinations were performed using a 3.5-MHz Acuson 128 PX curvilinear probe. Fetal lips, mouth, tongue, pharynx, larynx, trachea and esophagus were surveyed in serial coronal and sagittal planes. All fetal mouthing movements were analyzed by a review of the videotape in slow motion. RESULTS: In both normal and high-risk fetuses, yawning was represented by isolated mouthing movements and consisted of slow opening of the mouth with simultaneous downward movements of the tongue. This phase occupied 50-75% of the yawning cycle. After reaching its maximum opening, the mouth remained wide open for 2-8 s and returned to its resting position within seconds. Growth-restricted fetuses demonstrated yawning patterns consisting of isolated yawns similar to those seen in healthy fetuses. Unusual bursts of fetal yawning activity were recorded in anemic fetuses. CONCLUSION: Yawning activity in anemic fetuses may represent a compensatory process to increase venous return to the heart.  (+info)

The role of medical problems and behavioral risks in explaining patterns of prenatal care use among high-risk women. (5/421)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the associations between maternal medical conditions and behavioral risks and the patterns of prenatal care use among high-risk women. DATA SOURCE/STUDY DESIGN: Data on over 25,000 high-risk deliveries to African American and white women using multinomial logistic regression to predict the odds of adequate-plus care relative to three other categories of care. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: Data were extracted from records maintained by the University of Florida/Shands Hospital maternity clinic on all deliveries between 1987 and 1994; records for white and for African American women were subset to examine racial differences in medical conditions, health behaviors, and patterns of prenatal care use. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Net of sociodemographic and fertility-related characteristics, African American and white women with late antepartum conditions and hypertension problems had significantly higher odds of receiving adequate-plus care, as well as no care or inadequate care, relative to adequate care. White women with gynecological disease and medical/surgical problems were significantly less likely to receive no care or inadequate care, as were African American women with gynecological disease. CONCLUSIONS: Maternal medical conditions explain much but not all of the adequate-plus prenatal care use. More than 13 percent of African American women and 20 percent of white women with no reported medical problems or behavioral risks used adequate-plus care. Additional research is needed to understand this excess use and its possibilities in mediating birth outcomes.  (+info)

Maternal age- and gestation-specific risk for trisomy 21. (6/421)

OBJECTIVE: To provide estimates of maternal age- and gestational age-related risks for trisomy 21. METHODS: The prevalence of trisomy 21 was examined in 57,614 women who had fetal karyotyping at 9-16 weeks of gestation for the sole indication of maternal age of 35 years or more. On the basis of the maternal age distribution and the reported maternal age-related risk for trisomy 21 at birth, the expected number of trisomy 21 cases was calculated for each gestational age subgroup (9-10 weeks, 11-14 weeks and 15-16 weeks). The ratio of the observed to expected number of cases of trisomy 21 was then calculated and regression analysis was applied to derive a smoothened curve. The formula for maternal age- and gestational age-related risk was then applied to a population of 96,127 pregnancies that were examined at 10-14 weeks to calculate the expected number of trisomy 21 pregnancies, and this number was compared to the observed number of 326. RESULTS: In the 57,614 pregnancies there were 538 cases of trisomy 21. The relative prevalences of trisomy 21, compared to a prevalence of 1.0 at 40 weeks, was 10 exp(0.2718 x log(10)(gestation)2 - 1.023 x log10(gestation) + 0.9425). On the basis of the estimated maternal age- and gestational age-related risks, the expected number of trisomy 21 cases at 10-14 weeks of gestation in the 96,127 pregnancies was 329 (95% confidence interval 291-361), which was not significantly different from the observed number of 326 cases (chi2 = 0.02). CONCLUSION: The risk for trisomy 21 increases with maternal age and decreases with gestation. The prevalence of trisomy 21 at 12 and 16 weeks of gestation is higher than the prevalence at 40 weeks by 30% and 21%, respectively.  (+info)

Prevalence of aneuploidy with a cardiac intraventricular echogenic focus in an at-risk patient population. (7/421)

The objective of this study was to determine the relative risk for aneuploidy in the presence of a cardiac intraventricular echogenic focus in a patient population at high risk for aneuploidy. A retrospective cohort study was conducted on patients referred to a fetal diagnostic center who were undergoing amniocentesis. Records and second trimester sonograms were reviewed. Approximately 5100 comprehensive prenatal sonograms were obtained over a 2 year study period. Karyotyping by amniocentesis was done in 2412 women; 84 of the karyotypes (3.5%) were abnormal. Fetuses with no ultrasonographic findings suggestive of aneuploidy had a 1.4% (28 of 1940) prevalence of significant chromosomal abnormalities. An intraventricular echogenic focus was found in 149 of the women with karyotype analysis; 15 had an abnormal karyotype. Fetuses with intraventricular echogenic foci had a relative risk of 3.30 of aneuploidy when compared to fetuses without echogenic cardiac foci. The presence of an isolated intraventricular echogenic focus carried a relative risk of 4.08 compared to those fetuses in which ultrasonography had no finding associated with aneuploidy. In conclusion, these preliminary data indicate that presence of an intraventricular echogenic cardiac focus carries an increased risk of fetal aneuploidy.  (+info)

Influence of parity on the obstetric performance of mothers aged 40 years and above. (8/421)

We reviewed the delivery records of 205 mothers aged 40 years and above who delivered from 1st January 1994 to 31st December 1996 to examine the influence of parity on their obstetric performance. There were 51 (24.9%) primiparous mothers. The incidences of antenatal complications (antepartum haemorrhage, hypertensive disorder, glucose intolerance, prematurity), labour performance (type of labour, mode of delivery) and neonatal outcome (birth weight, Apgar scores, neonatal intensive care unit admission, perinatal mortality) were compared between the 51 (24.9%) primiparous and the 154 (75.1%) multiparous mothers. Higher incidences of antepartum haemorrhage (17.6 versus 5.8%, P = 0.0188), hypertensive disorder (17.6 versus 5.2%, P = 0.015), labour induction (33.3 versus 14.3%, P = 0.004) and Caesarean section delivery (58.8 versus 20.8%, P < 0.0001) were found among the primiparous mothers than the multiparous group. Neonatal outcome, however, was similar in both groups. We conclude that the primiparous mothers aged 40 years and above had more complicated antenatal and labour courses than multiparous mothers. On the other hand, the neonatal outcomes of two groups were comparable.  (+info)

Background & aim: High-risk pregnancies increase the risk of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) admission in mothers and their newborns. In this study, we aimed to identify the association between the recurrence of high-risk pregnancy and mothers previous experience of having an infant admitted to NICU. Methods:We performed a cohort, retrospective study to compare subsequent pregnancy outcomes among 232 control subjects and 200 female cases with a previous experience of having a newborn requiring NICU admission due to intrauterine growth retardation, preeclampsia, preterm birth, premature rupture of membranes, and asphyxia. The information about the prevalence of subsequent high-risk pregnancies was gathered via phone calls. Results: As the results indicated, heparin, progesterone, and aspirin were more frequently administered in the case group during subsequent pregnancies, compared to the control group (P|0.001). Also, pregnancy-induced hypertension, preeclampsia,
A new study has found that expectant mothers living close to hydraulic fracturing wells are more likely to experience high-risk pregnancies or deliver prematurely. Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, involves drilling into the earth and pumping water, chemicals and sand to release the natural gas inside.. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health discovered that pregnant women residing close to active fracking areas were 40 percent more likely to deliver preterm, or before 37 weeks of gestation. They also found a 30 percent rise in high-risk pregnancies. Pregnancies are labeled high-risk when they involve factors such as excessive weight gain or elevated blood pressure in the mother.. The study, published in the journal Epidemiology, involved examining the medical records of 9,384 mothers in Pennsylvania who gave birth to 10,946 babies between January 2009 and 2013. The research team compared how close the pregnant women lived to active fracking wells. ...

Understanding what a high-risk pregnancy is can be fairly hard. Sure, you can read up about it, understand the different complications that can cause one, and even sympathise with someone who is going through this trying time, but it is almost impossible for you to really understand what pregnancy problems are, unless youve faced it yourself. Growing up, one of my most dearly held dreams was to start a family. While many in my peer circle feel the pressure of having children keenly, and thus avoid it, I was able to find a partner who agreed wholeheartedly with my vision, and jumped on board when I felt I was ready.. After consulting with a number of friends and family, we decided that the most important decision was to shortlist a good maternal hospital. After a lot of deliberation, we decided to go with Apollo Cradle, one of the leading maternal hospitals in the country. With a panel of experienced specialists supporting us, we received both empathetic and competent medical support. This was ...

I do not like to be late. And yesterday, being late made me all emotional. My car crawled up Brookline Avenue while I imagined having to reschedule my appointment for the following day, making the stupid drive all over again. By the time I pulled into the parking garage, I had six minutes to find the right hospital wing and check in for my appointment.. Which, of course, I did not do efficiently. Late pregnancy hormones and emotions have my brain mostly scrambled, so I ended up in the wrong wing of the clinic, nowhere near where I was supposed to be. My blood sugar started to tumble at this point, bringing emotions even more to the surface while I left a trail of glucose tab dust along the hallways of Beth Israel. Add that to the fact that I was late and mildly lost in the myriad of signs and corridors and I lost my cool.. Man, I felt stupid. I was crying while waddling through the hospital, asking random people how to get to the proper hospital wing. Their directions werent making sense to my ...

We care for about 3,500 pregnant women every year. While that number has remained fairly steady over the past decade, the number of those women with high-risk pregnancies increases every year. Because high-risk pregnancy is a catch-all term that includes factors such as age and chronic health problems, it can be difficult to determine exactly how many of these women there are. But my colleagues and I can tell you that were treating more women who fall into this category than ever before. The most severe pregnancy complications - such as eclampsia, heart failure and hemorrhage - are referred to as severe maternal morbidity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the severe maternal morbidity rate has more than doubled from 2000 to 2010, and now affects 650,000 women in the United States every year. Many factors contribute to this increase, but the two we see most often in the District of Columbia are obesity and advanced maternal age. ...
If you are planning to become pregnant, taking certain steps can help reduce risks to both you and your baby. Proper health before deciding to become pregnant is almost as important as maintaining a healthy body during pregnancy.. The first few weeks of pregnancy are crucial in a childs development. However, many women do not realize they are pregnant until several weeks after conception. Planning ahead and taking care of yourself before becoming pregnant is the best thing you can do for you and your baby.. One of the most important steps in helping you prepare for a healthy pregnancy is a pre-pregnancy examination (often called preconception care) performed by your health care provider before you become pregnant. This examination may include any/all of the following:. ...
The study population consisted of patients enrolled in an IPA-model HMO from January 1992 to November 1994. In a metropolitan area with a population of approximately 2.5 million people, this was the largest and most profitable HMO during the study period, serving a population of over 180,000 members and providing for approximately 2,500 deliveries annually. The HMO patient population was representative of the socioeconomic and educational strata in the metropolitan area, which was predominantly Caucasian and of middle income status.. In 1992, the HMO implemented a comprehensive preterm-birth prevention program, the intent of which was to improve pregnancy outcomes, lessening both the emotional and financial burden associated with preterm birth. The program consisted of a pre-conception phase that focused on identifying behaviors, lifestyles, and/or risk factors that could impact the outcome of future pregnancies, and a prenatal phase where pregnant members were screened at approximately 12, 24, ...
Fetal ultrasound has no known risks other than mild discomfort due to pressure from the transducer on the abdomen or in the vagina. No radiation is used during the procedure.. Transvaginal ultrasound requires covering the ultrasound transducer in a plastic/latex sheath, which may cause a reaction in patients with a latex allergy.. Fetal ultrasound is sometimes offered in non-medical settings to provide keepsake images or videos for parents. While the ultrasound procedure itself is considered safe, it is possible that untrained personnel may give parents false assurances about their babys well-being, or perhaps an abnormality may be missed. Having ultrasound performed by trained medical personnel who can correctly interpret findings is recommended. Talk with your physician if you have questions.. Ultrasound is a technique that is constantly being improved and refined. As with any test, results may not be completely accurate. However, ultrasound can provide valuable information for parents and ...

Now, ready for the next level of concern? Those are just my thoughts about my first 6 months or so when I begin my first fulltime, career job. As I look down the road for a few years, I get to the point where I want to have kids. Chronic illness sufferers tend to have one of two situations with pregnancy. Some experience what is essentially a full remission, where their conditions are virtually inactive. Others experience basically a 9-month flare. There is really no way to predict which (if either) someone will have, and you cant even rely on having the same experience over subsequent pregnancies. But I do know that mine will be high risk pregnancies right off the bat (if you read the paragraph in my previous blog about finding a gynecologist, you understand why), and even if I dont expect the worst I can reasonably think I will need to take precautions during that time. My firm offers good maternity benefits, but I will still need to plan things out. But thats ok, not that big of a ...
Abnormal vaginal flora is a risk factor for preterm labor. Therefore, in high risk pregnancies for preterm labor the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal flora is indicated. Clindamycin and metronidazole given orally are both acceptable treatments in these cases. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of Clindamycin Vs metronidazole for the treatment of abnormal vaginal flora in high risk pregnancies. For this purpose, pregnant women who are considered high risk for preterm labor and were diagnosed with abnormal vaginal flora will be randomly treated either with clindamycin or metronidazole. Eradication of the abnormal flora and adverse effects will be monitored and ...
As many as 3 percent of all pregnancies result in the birth of a baby with chromosomal anomalies like Down syndrome or structural anomalies such as congenital heart disease. Expectant mothers whose sonogram or other screening test turns up an abnormality are often referred for specialized prenatal assessment and care. The Center for Prenatal Pediatrics at Morgan Stanley Childrens Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian is the only comprehensive program in the New York metropolitan area, providing a seamless progression of specialized care for complex, high-risk pregnancies from diagnosis to birth and beyond.
The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences created this telemedicine program to increase access to care for pregnant rural women in an effort to improve outcomes for high-risk pregnancies.
Some of the changes in the demographics of childbearing-particularly delayed childbearing and increased average maternal age-clearly lead to more high-risk pregnancies. Other changes, such as increases in the education levels of pregnant women, lead to fewer high-risk pregnancies. Changes in obstetrics that make the management of high-risk pregnancies. better inevitably spill over into obstetric practice generally. These changes make it possible to monitor the fetus more closely and to diagnose more fetal problems. It is hard to know which babies Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical will benefit from medically induced preterm birth and which will not. Overall, we see infant and fetal mortality rates going down, even as preterm birth rates rise.39 A Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical 2004 report from the National Center for Health Statistics gives a better picture of how widespread the improvements have been. They note improvements not just in the infant mortality rate (death before 1 ...
In collaboration with Johns Hopkins Health Care, the Johns Hopkins Department of Obstetrics-Gynecology, and the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, CPHIT is working to identify patients who qualify for the Partners with Moms program. The goal is to identify patients who are at high risk for premature birth and low birth weight. Applying natural language processing and other computer science techniques, we are using physician notes and other unstructured parts of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) to identify high risk markers and flags. This project and the techniques used will help us learn how different parts of an EHR can be used to identify populations for care management programs. ...

hybridization (FISH) is a powerful molecular cytogenetic technique which allows rapid detection of aneuploidies on interphase cells and metaphase spreads. The aim of the present study was to evaluate FISH as a tool in prenatal diagnosis of aneuploidies in high risk pregnancies in an Indian set up. Prenatal diagnosis was carried out in 88 high-risk pregnancies using FISH and cytogenetic analysis. Multicolour commercially available FISH probes specific for chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y were used. Interphase FISH was done on uncultured cells from chorionic villus and amniotic fluid samples. FISH on metaphase spreads was done from cord blood samples. The results of FISH were in conformity with the results of cytogenetic analysis in all the normal and aneuploid cases except in one case of structural chromosomal abnormality. The hybridization efficiency of the 5 probes used for the detection of aneuploidies was 100%. Using these probes FISH assay yielded discrete differences in the signal profiles ...
The care of the child begins with the care of the fetus. Accurate prenatal diagnosis and optimal perinatal management strongly affect the outcomes of the future infant, not just in childhood but throughout life. Careful planning of perinatal care for high risk pregnancies improves neonatal outcomes. Optimal maternal and fetal care with high-risk pregnancies improves neonatal outcomes and also decreases mortality and morbidity of mothers. Over the last 3 decades, fetal medicine has evolved into a distinct discipline that primarily focuses on the fetus as a patient. Many hospitals now have fetal medicine programs with coordinated and integrated care provided by subspecialists and support staff from maternal-fetal medicine and pediatric subspecialties such as neonatology, surgery, neurosurgery, urology, cardiology, genetics, palliative care, and ethics. This chapter will provide a brief overview of assessment of fetal well-being, prenatal screening and diagnostic tests, common problems that affect ... Pregnancy ...

We show that fetal trisomy 21 could be detected in high risk pregnancies with high sensitivity and specificity by means of multiplexed sequencing of maternal plasma DNA. A key strength of the study is that the diagnostic performance was compared against full karyotyping, which is the gold standard for aneuploidy diagnosis. Another strength of this study is that the test performance was assessed based on a large number of trisomy 21 and unaffected pregnancies. In fact, this study reports the largest scale use of massively parallel genomic sequencing (so called next generation sequencing) for medical diagnostics to date and shows that it is practically feasible on a large scale.. Another strength of the study lies in the comparison of the diagnostic performance of sequencing protocols with two levels of sample throughput. The comparison allows us to deduce factors that are fundamental to the sensitive detection of fetal trisomy 21 and provide insight into ways for further improvements. Measurement ...
To say I did not have a normal pregnancy would be an understatement. I was due to have Roslyn on January 24th and had a very high risk pregnancy. I was told throughout my pregnancy that when I would go into labor I would be under strict monitoring as I had a single umbilical cord artery and polyhydramnios both of which put me at increased risks for multiple complications. I also knew from my ultrasounds that my baby would need surgery immediately after birth and would have to go straight to the NICU. I remember feeling sad I would not have a normal birthing experience but also felt the strict monitoring would keep me and my baby safe throughout our delivery. I guess things never really go as planned or how they say they will though! ...

Digest that for just a second. A 43 year old woman carrying a child with known Downs Syndrome, in her eighth month of pregnancy voluntarily embarked upon a transcontinental adventure to give a speech. Then after noticing some cramps and the passage of amniotic fluid, she went ahead with her speech and, instead of proceeding directly to the nearest Dallas high risk pregnancy center, boarded a four hour flight to Seattle. Then she hung out in the Seattle airport lounge for a while and took a connecting flight to Alaska. Then she drives to Wasilla. Finally she decided to seek medical attention at a local Wasilla hospital, a facility lacking an NICU and other high risk specialists. Thats her story . . .

Routine intrapartum electronic fetal monitoring is not recommended for low risk women. There is insufficient evidence regarding its routine use in high risk pregnancies. Despite the lack of evidence on its positive impact on health outcomes and the 1996 USPSTF recommendation against its routine use, intrapartum electronic fetal monitoring has become common practice in the U.S. Based on currently available evidence, the USPSTF believes that updating its 1996 recommendation would have limited potential impact on clinical practice. The USPSTF will not update its 1996 recommendation.. This doesnt seem to matter - that the governing organizations for obstetric practice recommend against routine continuous monitoring, and that a governmental agency for healthcare quality also recommends against it - it is still rampant and commonplace because obstetric practice is driven by fear. Fear of litigation, and fear of bad outcomes. The strange thing is that when we practice based on fear, we end up getting ...

  • May 4, 2010 -- Women who take high doses of vitamin D during pregnancy have a greatly reduced risk of complications, including gestational diabetes , preterm birth, and infection, new research suggests. (
  • Compared to women who took 400 IU of vitamin D daily, those who took 4,000 IU were half as likely to develop gestational diabetes, pregnancy-related high blood pressure , or preeclampsia , Wagner says. (
  • Gestational diabetes can occur during pregnancy when the mother's body doesn't produce enough insulin, or becomes resistant to insulin. (
  • Her age, history of high blood pressure and gestational diabetes from a previous pregnancy, prior abdominal surgeries, exposure to second-hand smoke, and severe nausea in the first trimester placed her at high risk of delivering a pre-term baby. (
  • As a result, L.M. was able to avoid gestational hypertension during her pregnancy and delivered a full-term, healthy baby girl. (
  • They showed that women with SCD have an increased risk of preeclampsia and maternal death, stillbirths, preterm deliveries, and small-for-gestational-age newborns. (
  • Obesity is a major risk factor for gestational diabetes, increasing the likelihood of the disorder three - five fold. (
  • In practice today, all obese pregnant women are categorised as being of equally high risk of gestational diabetes, whereas in reality, only around 25% will develop the disorder. (
  • From the many factors tested, those that predicted gestational diabetes included older age, disease in a previous pregnancy, higher blood pressure and anthropometric measures such as skin thicknesses, waist and mid-arm circumferences. (
  • Lead author, Dr Sara White from King's College London said: "There is currently no accepted strategy to identify obese women at high risk of gestational diabetes, early in pregnancy. (
  • PCOS may result in higher rates of miscarriage (the spontaneous loss of the fetus before 20 weeks of pregnancy), gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and premature delivery. (
  • Medical research has already produced evidence that women who have gestational hypertension or preeclampsia during pregnancy will carry a greater risk of cardiac problems such as stroke or heart attack even after the pregnancy is carried to term and their blood pressure returns to normal. (
  • Gestational hypertension, on the other hand, tripled that same risk. (
  • Compared with women who had normal blood pressure throughout their first pregnancy, women who developed gestational hypertension were almost three times more likely to have high blood pressure again in the future, while women with preeclampsia had more than double the risk. (
  • Those who had gestational high blood pressure or preeclampsia in at least one pregnancy had stiffer arteries, and two to five times the rate of chronic high blood pressure later on, the findings showed. (
  • Mothers with higher-than-normal blood sugar during pregnancy-even if not high enough to meet the definition for gestational diabetes commonly used in the US today-also were significantly more likely to have developed type 2 diabetes a decade after pregnancy than their counterparts without high blood sugar. (
  • The Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute offers diabetes services for pregnant women who already have diabetes or develop gestational diabetes, and our physicians work closely with them to ensure women are getting the care they need throughout their pregnancy," says Dr. Daneshmand. (
  • Gestational Diabetes Program - Group discussion, individualized care plans, connectivity with your physician, and ongoing support to address this form of diabetes that impacts approximately 18 percent of all pregnancies. (
  • A history of pregnancy-related hypertension disorders, such as preeclampsia, increases your risk of having this diagnosis during your next pregnancy. (
  • A history of chronic hypertension, diabetes, heart disorders, breathing problems such as poorly controlled asthma, infections, and blood-clotting disorders such as deep vein thrombosis can increase pregnancy risks. (
  • High blood pressure before conception and early in pregnancy may increase the risk of pregnancy loss, even if the woman does not have a hypertension diagnosis, new research has found. (
  • The findings, published in the journal Hypertension, showed that for every 10 mm Hg increase in diastolic blood pressure (pressure when the heart is resting between beats), there was 18 per cent higher risk for pregnancy loss among the study population. (
  • Pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, epilepsy, anemia, infection or an underlying mental health issue can increase risk during pregnancy. (
  • Although the risk of developing pulmonary persistent hypertension in such cases was found to be low, the study's authors advised caution while treating expectant mothers under prescribed anti-depressants. (
  • We also offer complete care for diabetes, hypertension (high-blood pressure), and many other conditions that can complicate pregnancy, if left unmanaged. (
  • Hypertension in early pregnancy increases the risk a woman will have a baby with birth defects, regardless of whether she takes ACE inhibitors or any other antihypertensives, concludes a US study. (
  • But these findings could prompt a review of the guidelines, after finding that in early pregnancy, it is the hypertension and not the treatment that can raise the risk of birth defects. (
  • After adjusting for maternal age, ethnicity, number of children, pre-existing diabetes and weight, researchers found using ACE inhibitors in the first trimester only was associated with a 54% increased risk of congenital heart defects compared with controls who did not have hypertension. (
  • Presence of hypertension itself during pregnancy - without use of antihypertensive drugs - was associated with a 41% increased risk. (
  • There was no increased risk with ACE inhibitors or other antihypertensives when compared with controls who had hypertension but were not taking medication. (
  • Dr Chris Barry, a GP in Swindon and member of the guideline development group for the 2010 NICE hypertension in pregnancy guidelines, said the findings had implications for the recent NICE recommendation that ACE inhibitors should be discontinued before pregnancy where possible: 'This paper may - and I stress may - render that recommendation obsolete. (
  • Half of women who delivered babies in 2014 were either overweight or obese before becoming pregnant, putting them at greater risk for issues such as heart disease, hypertension, or diabetes, all of which can trigger complications during pregnancy and childbirth. (
  • High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a key factor in cardiovascular health. (
  • While the new study didn't conclusively link pregnancy blood pressure problems to being the cause of post-pregnancy hypertension, the study's authors do caution that they can't rule it out either. (
  • 2 Women with gestation hypertension and preeclampsia had a higher risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol in the first year following them having birth. (
  • Future research could assess new ways of treating high blood pressure ("hypertension") or simply treating it more aggressively in women who have had it at least once during pregnancy, Honigberg suggested. (
  • High-risk patients are treated for a wide range of issues including abnormal ultrasounds, concerns from previous pregnancies, hypertension, organ transplants, respiratory disease, congenital heart disease, and genetic abnormalities. (
  • Perinatologists assist in pregnancies with a maternal or fetal complication, including diabetes, hypertension, history of pregnancy loss, birth defects, or growth issues. (
  • A pregnant woman who has hypertension, meaning her blood pressure is higher than normal, may have an increased risk to both her own health and her baby's. (
  • Women with hypertension can also have complications such as preeclampsia, as well as risk of stroke or heart attack," says Dr. Daneshmand. (
  • Recommendations for prevention include aspirin in those at high risk, calcium supplementation in areas with low intake, and treatment of prior hypertension with medications. (
  • For routine prenatal outpatient visits for patients with high-risk pregnancies, a code from category V23, Supervision of high-risk pregnancy, should be used as the first-listed diagnosis. (

  • For the first time ever, a team of Toronto researchers are using a combination of ultrasound and blood tests to screen high-risk pregnant mothers for placental damage. (
  • By completing these non-invasive tests, most high-risk mothers can be reassured that their placenta is formed and functioning properly, so they can expect a healthy pregnancy. (
  • Close to 40 per cent of high-risk mothers we see in our clinic experience placental damage," says Dr. John Kingdom, Principal Investigator of the study and Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital. (

  • With a wealth of data at our fingertips, health insurers are uniquely positioned to identify high-risk pregnancies early on and connect mothers-to-be with necessary education, social support, and clinical care. (
  • Using a proactive and robust identification process and an evidenced-based approach to early intervention and case management, together with Optum, OB/GYN providers, and our expectant mothers earlier during pregnancy, we can give babies their best chance for healthy lives," said Dr. Adolfo Valadez, Chief Medical Officer for FirstCare.

  • This comprehensive and advanced care includes access to board-certified physician specialists and experienced, compassionate high-risk obstetrics nurses and medical assistants who provide specialized care for mothers whose pregnancies are complicated by illness or fetal abnormality. (
  • High-risk is just a term used to describe mothers who have a higher than average risk of having health problems during their pregnancy or birth, or of delivering a baby with problems. (
  • Donnelly often creates a birthing plan for mothers, and because she's the only fully trained maternal-fetal medicine specialist in the High Country, mothers no longer have to drive to Denver for specialty care. (
  • First-time mothers who are older than 35 have a higher chance of certain problems during their pregnancy. (
  • Mothers who have had more than four deliveries, three cesarean sections, an infant that weighed more than four kilograms at birth, or a mother who has had miscarriages indicate additional risk," Dr. Rasik says. (
  • Children whose mothers reported infections had increased risk of HrBW ( p = 0.0003), particularly in the absence of cord blood islet autoantibodies (interaction between HrBW, islet autoantibodies and infections, p = 0.0005). (
