When certain conditions and symptoms present themselves during a pregnancy, it becomes a pregnancy that is high risk. Having this type of pregnancy means that there is a great chance of complications arising from the pregnancy. A lot of the time, these symptoms aren't expected and sometimes occur without any warning. Other times, however, there are certain risk factors that should indicate that a pregnancy may be a high risk one. A birth defects lawyer can assist in legal issues regarding a pregnancy that is high risk.

Many different things can lead to a pregnancy that is high risk. Some of these main things include the following:

  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Previous pregnancy problems

Approximately 5-10% of all pregnancies are considered to be high risk pregnancies. When a pregnancy is showing symptoms that it may be a high risk one, the result can sometimes be the birth of a premature baby. Premature babies are subjected to serious and life threatening health problems. If you feel a medical professional did not do his or her best to recongize the obvious symptoms, contact a birth defects lawyer today.

Unfortunately, some complications cannot be avoided. However, a competent doctor should be able to minimize these risks and in some cases, avoid them completely, especially if you were showing symptoms early enough. Advances in technology make this even more possible. If you feel the doctor did not try his or her hardest to reduce complications in the pregnancy even though you were showing the symptoms, contact a birth defects lawyer.
