Low Risk Pregnancy
Most pregnancies are considered low risk. A pregnancy is considered low risk if the mother does not have nor develop any conditions that could negatively impact the health of herself or the fetus. Mothers with low risk pregnancies are generally healthy and can expect a normal delivery. Maintained prenatal care is just as important during this time. Schedule routine visits with Sylacauga OB/GYN, and have any questions or concerns regarding pregnancy answered.
High Risk Pregnancy
There are several factors that can make a pregnancy high risk, including: health conditions, birth defects, and the lifestyle of the mother. The degree of risk can vary from minor to life-threatening. Those with high-risk pregnancies will require greater obstetrical care both pre- and post-delivery. This specialized care from qualified professionals will increase the likelihood of a safe delivery and a healthy baby.
For women with certain health and delivery issues, a cesarean delivery, more commonly known as a C-section, is a safer alternative than vaginal delivery. A C-section is a procedure in which incisions are made to the mother’s abdomen and uterus to deliver a baby. Sylacauga OB/GYN can help mothers determine if this procedure is right for them and their baby.
At Sylacauga OB/GYN, we understand the emotional and physical difficulties that come from not being able to get or stay pregnant. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), infertility is defined by not being able to get pregnant after one year or longer of trying. Sylacauga OB/GYN offers testing for infertility to determine the cause of your reproductive difficulties. In addition, we provide treatment and referrals for you to find a path that fits your desires and needs.
An ultrasound exam uses sound waves to produce images in order to monitor pregnancy in expecting mothers. The images from ultrasounds provide vital information to you and your doctors. This exam can answer many of your questions through things such as determining gestational age and identifying developmental milestones.
