Abstract

Background: A high-risk pregnancy refers to pregnancy with an increased risk of adverse outcome in the mother or baby. Directing appropriate timely intervention is very important to prevent maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Aim was to study the prevalence of High-risk pregnancy and to study the maternal and perinatal outcome.

Results: Among 3,887pregnant patients, 1126 (28.96%) were high risk pregnancies. The most common high-risk factors were hypothyroidism (15.96%), hypertensive disorder (3.31%), previous one caesarean section (2.8%). 88% high risk pregnant women had caesarean section. 96.5% neonates had APGAR score more than 7 and 1.7% neonates were admitted to NICU. There were 8 macerated and 3 fresh still births.
