Every step
of the way
A high-risk pregnancy can be a nerve-wracking
experience, but a little extra attention from a specialist
means mum and baby are in the best hands

P

regnancy can be an anxious time,
and a high-risk pregnancy can
be worrying for both the health
of mother and baby. That's why
Aliaa Arafa, a consultant obstetrician
and gynaecologist at The Portland
Hospital In London believes that every
woman should be able to receive the
support and care she needs.
'My top priority is the safety of the
mother and child, creating an open
relationship so mothers are informed
every step of the way,' she says.

Get the right care

It's possible for perfectly healthy
women to develop health problems
for the first time during pregnancy.
These can include gestational diabetes,
growth problems and pre-eclampsia
(hypertension). Carrying a baby can
also bring additional risks to a mumto-be with a long-term illness, so the
pregnancy will need close monitoring.
Any problems that occur are normally
very minor, but in some cases, a

high-risk pregnancy can be life
threatening for mother and child.
'The majority of women who we treat
are fit, young and healthy, but they
suffer an acute and sudden onset of
problems in gynaecology which need
further investigation, treatment and
diagnosis,' explains Dr Arafa. 'Of course,
some may have no issues and just
need support to plan their antenatal
care and delivery.'

Make the best plan

With a high-risk pregnancy, more
frequent prenatal appointments might
be required because mother and baby
will need regular monitoring. The exact
care needed depends on the particular
circumstance and the reasons why the
pregnancy is high-risk.
If you have been identified as having a
high-risk pregnancy, it's worth preparing
for the idea that the birth may not be
the one that has been planned. For
example, a specialist like Dr Arafa - who
specialises in emergency issues during

Dr Aliaa Arafa is

practising at The
Portland Hospital.
After studying for
a medical degree
at Alexandria
University, Dr Arafa gained extensive
experience in hospitals across Egypt
and Saudi Arabia, before moving to the
UK in 1996 to continue her training in a
number of prestigious UK hospitals.
She specialises in high-risk pregnancy,
cervical cancer screening, colposcopy
and foetal medicine and feels strongly
it is every woman's right to choose the
type of obstetric care and support she
would like to receive.
A member of British Society for
Colposcopy and cervical Pathology and
an accredited colposcopist. She is an
expert in management of patients with
abnormal smears. Miss Arafa is happy
to arrange colposcopy examinations

labour - might need to be on hand.
Another possibility is that labour might
need to be induced to prevent or reduce
any health problems.
But it's all in a day's work for Dr Arafa.
'Looking after pregnant women and
their unborn babies, plus planning for
the whole pregnancy is of paramount
importance and at the heart of what we
do,' she explains. 'Also, accommodating
each woman's personal choice for her
child's delivery, whatever the health
issues, is a focus. We want to help her
achieve the very best outcome.'
