What is Antenatal Care?

Antenatal care is crucial for monitoring and supporting the health and development of both the mother and baby during pregnancy. Regular appointments allow our healthcare professionals to detect and manage any potential issues early, ensuring a safer pregnancy and delivery.

Understanding Low-Risk and High-Risk Pregnancies

Low-Risk Pregnancies Most pregnancies are low-risk, which means they are not expected to have significant complications. Women with low-risk pregnancies are generally healthy and do not have pre-existing health conditions that could affect pregnancy. In these cases, routine antenatal appointments are focused on monitoring the baby’s growth, maternal health, and preparing for a normal delivery.

High-Risk Pregnancies A high-risk pregnancy is one that has an increased risk of health complications for the mother, baby, or both. This can be due to various factors, including pre-existing medical conditions, complications that arise during pregnancy, or multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc.). Women with high-risk pregnancies require closer monitoring, which may include more frequent antenatal visits, specialised tests, and interventions to manage any complications.
