OUR SERVICES & TREATMENTS
WE SPECIALIZE IN:
What does low risk mean?
You are pregnant with one baby only (not twins or triplets), your baby is growing normally and is in a ‘head down’ position
You have been healthy and well throughout your pregnancy and have no known medical or obstetric conditions, bloods & scans are normal.
When you give birth, this should take place between 37–42 weeks, known as ‘term’
You have not developed any new problems such as your waters being broken for longer than 24 hours before labour or being more than two weeks over your due date.
For women who are at low risk of complications, giving birth is generally very safe for both the woman and her baby. The majority of pregnancies are considered low-risk. There is no need for or benefit from medical intervention. Most pregnancies (92 to 94 percent) are considered low-risk. Mom and baby are healthy and there’s nothing to indicate that labor and delivery won’t go smoothly. In these situations, a low-intervention labor and delivery can be a wonderful option.
