Pregnancy is a very sensitive and individual condition in a woman's life. Unfortunately, problems during pregnancy or birth cannot always be avoided.
What is a high-risk pregnancy?
A high-risk pregnancy means that the likelihood of complications is greater during pregnancy than in a "normal case". This is the case, for example, if the mother is aged 35 and over, or if she has already had a caesarean section.
But risk does not mean that you have to fear for yourself and your child, but rather, that you should be medically monitored and supported more intensively during your pregnancy and delivery. In this way we can detect possible problems and complications early on or already avoid them in advance.
We advise and provide care for women with high-risk pregnancies in the following areas:
- premature labour
- cervical incompetence
- maternal diabetes in pregnancy (diabetes mellitus and gestational diabetes)
- other, chronic maternal diseases
- pregnancy-related maternal diseases such as pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), preeclampsia/eclampsia, HELLP syndrome...
- birth defects
- growth problems (slowed foetal growth)
- irregular foetal positions (e.g., breech)
- multiple pregnancies
In addition to the care we provide for uncomplicated pregnancies and births, we offer:
- external cephalic version for breech presentation
- vaginal delivery for breech
- vaginal birth for twins
- outpatient and inpatient treatment with anticipated preterm birth and foetal lung maturation using tocolytic medication or cerclage / total closure of the cervix.
