She and her team will work to ensure that you have a safe pregnancy and delivery. A high-risk pregnancy is characterized as having one or more risk factors that increase the chance of health problems and/or preterm delivery. These factors include diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, age, and lifestyle. The designation of high-risk does not need to occur within a specific time frame. For example, an average risk pregnancy can progress to high-risk in the third trimester due to the physiological changes. This is just one reason why it is important to make it to every prenatal appointment.
Oftentimes, a high-risk pregnancy will only need additional monitoring. Dr. Sodhi works in conjunction with perinatologists to mitigate risk of further pregnancy complications. Under Dr. Sodhi’s care, you will have access to the best medical care, including specialized genetic testing and on-site 2D/3D/4D ultrasound along with coordination with other specialists as needed.
