(HealthDay News) -- If you're pregnant, a series of physical and demographic factors may dictate that your pregnancy is "high-risk" and requires special care.
The Womenshealth.gov website offers these examples of factors that can make a pregnancy high-risk:
Being young or being older than age 35.
Being underweight or overweight.
Having had complications during a prior pregnancy.
Having had at least one chronic health problem before pregnancy, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, HIV or an autoimmune disorder.
Expecting twins or triplets, etc.
