    I never claimed to be an expert, but I am entitled to an opinion.

    I think it's ridiculous that I might be considered high risk if I ever had another baby just because my third baby was born via emergency csection due to transverse lie.

    I have had a high risk pregnancy (mono amniotic twins) and decided to go private but wasn't accepted by the ob or the local hospital because the pregnancy was too high risk. I was sent to Randwick to a specialist in maternal fetal medicine.

    I was high risk with high Bp. I went to the women's but I was also in the catchment.

    I was classified as high risk at 20 weeks with my first pregnancy due to partial placenta praevia..
    Again classified as high risk when I got to 20 weeks and they discovered I'd had a brain hemorrhage.. Currently 28 weeks and may or may not continue to be classified as high risk.. will be reviewed again at 34 weeks..
