    Default what is classed as a high risk pregnancy?

    Afternoon ladies, as the title asks, what is considered a high risk pregnancy?From what I understand, If you don't live in the catchment area for the royal woman's melbourne you will be accepted if your pregnancy is high risk or becomes high risk?

    Cheers

    High risk is usually when you have a condition of some sort or there is a possible problem with bubs

    There are quite a few things that class as high risk. For example, being obese or having a blood clotting disorder.

    Good luck getting into the womens, a friend had a bub there and loved it!

    I googled this recently as I was curious too.

    There's certain criteria which classifies a pregnancy as high risk.

    For example, I will be high risk if I have another pregnancy based on my age (I'll be over 35) and the fact that I had a premmie.

    I was classed as high risk due to a previous placental abruption.

    I'm likely to have any pregnancies classed as high risk, as I have a bicornuate uterus

    I was high risk because I had an abnormal chromosome in my placenta. Absolutely nothing else wrong.

    High risk can also be gestational diabetes, maternal obesity or preeclampsia....
