At risk pregnancy

If your pregnancy is at risk, it is even more important that you count your baby’s movements daily.

If your pregnancy is at risk, you should be followed by a specialized clinic. A pregnancy can be at risk for many reasons, for example if you have one of the following conditions:

  • hypertension
  • gestational diabetes
  • twin pregnancy
  • intrauterine growth restriction
  • pre-existing renal disease
  • placental abruption or stillbirth in a previous pregnancy

Your baby’s movements can consist of kicks, pokes, rolls, flutters or any other movement you can feel from your baby.

  • you are older than 35
  • you suffer from obesity
  • you smoke, take drugs or drink alcohol during your pregnancy
  • this is your first pregnancy
