High Risk Pregnancy
The "high risk pregnancy clinic" is run by the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The clinic provides free consultation.
It aims at providing "surveillance and management" of pregnancies at risk due to either:
- Past obstetric outcomes like repeated abortions, previous still birth or neonatal deaths.
- Medical illnesses complicating pregnancy - high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, liver disorders, thyroid disorders, kidney diseases, anaemia.
- Events occurring during the present pregnancy like growth restriction, prematurity, bleeding or leaking etc .
High risk patients often require detailed assessment which involves:
- Genetic counselling
- Prenatal screening and diagnosis with facilities which include biochemical marker screening, chorion villus sampling, amniocentesis, fetal blood sampling and advanced ultrasound for the detection of fetal anomalies. More than 5000 invasive procedures have been carried out in the last 5 years.
- Extensive antepartum and intrapartum fetal surveillance
- Specialised neonatal care
The department is fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for providing the above mentioned care for these pregnancies in liaison with the division of Fetal Medicine, Genetics and Neonatology.
