I was high risk because my baby was diagnosed with a cardiac condition at 20 weeks. Up until that point I wasn't.
Because of that I had to move my care to the closest major hospital which was an hour away. Otherwise I wouldn't have been in the catchment for it.

I don't consider a lot of these to be high risk.
IMO high risk is when you MUST attend a specialised hospital because private obs and local hospitals won't accept you.

I don't consider some of them grounds for moving to a major hospital but they may warrant more frequent monitoring or ob care instead of midwife care.
Grand multiparas are also classed as high risk where I live and you must have an ob at the birth and a cannula placed ready for emergencies.

A lot of local hospital still see high risk patients. Especially in rural settings.
I was consider high risk with my last because I lost almost 100 just before getting pg. I was 39. I was having my 9th pg/ 6th baby. I had a cancer scare that couldn't be checked properly until Bub was born.

On another side...the doctors have told me I will be classified as high risk next time because of the severity of my bipolar disorder/post natal psychosis last time. I will need to deliver at the states main maternity hospital where they have specialized psychiatric ante/postnatal care.

I was classed as high risk with DD because I had IDGD. I was kicked out of the midwife program at my local hospital and had to attend the larger hospital that was 200km/2hrs away for weekly appts with the endo and ob and the birth.

I have an autoimmune disease. I'm not entirely sure if I'll be high risk but I'll definitely need more monitoring than normal and have to see an endocrinologist throughout the pregnancy.
