What care do we offer for high risk pregnancies?
Going through a high risk pregnancy has its ups and downs which can be draining physically, emotionally and financially. High risk pregnancies is will require special monitoring or care during pregnancy. This requires a coordinated approach by consultants and specialists in various fields. For example, an expectant lady with kidney disease requires her kidney specialist to work together with the obstetrician. This is called multidisciplinary care. It also require facilities for specialized care to be available if required. An example of such facilities is the newborn intensive care unit (NICU), adult intensive care units (ICU), and adult and newborn high dependency units (HDU).
Caring for high risk pregnancies may require:
- Preconception assessment
- Closer antenatal visits
- Specialized screening e.g. performing genetic tests or specialized ultrasound scans
- Interventions, for example, early delivery for severe high blood pressure
At Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi our team of specialists, who are also university lecturers, is among the most experienced in care of high risk pregnancies in the region. Besides referrals from facilities within Kenya we regularly receive referrals from the Eastern African region.
