Abstract

Pregnancy represents a unique alteration in physiology that usually ends without complications. The concept of “at risk pregnancy” is related to a pregnancy in which there is a risk of an adverse outcome in the mother and/or in the fetus that is greater than the incidence of that outcome in the general population. Once a risk factor known to be associated with an increased risk of a specific adverse outcome is identified, then professionals involved in pregnancy care may modify the routine antenatal care, providing to anticipate, minimise, prevent or treat that adverse outcome [1].
