A high-risk pregnancy is anything that increases the chances of the baby and mother not remaining healthy. This may be because the mother already has a problem before pregnancy, diabetes, kidney disease and hypertension being the most common. There may be something else about the mother, older (although as this becomes more common it is regarded as less of a risk), very young (under 16 and not yet fully grown herself), petite, (especially if the father is big) and obese. There may be something about the pregnancy itself, placenta praevia, pre-eclampsia. This is not an exhaustive list but gives you an idea. Answer meaning if there are potential problems with your pregnancy, different circumstances for every pregnancy, that doesn't always mean whatever their concern is will actually happen
