A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the parent or baby before, during or after delivery. Every year, approximately 50,000 people in the U.S. experience serious pregnancy complications. If your pregnancy is considered high risk, your doctor will likely recommend additional monitoring or proactive care to ensure you and your baby are healthy.
In honor of Heart Month, Inspira Spirit of Women hosted a webinar to empower women to take charge of their own heart health.
