Pregnancy Complications

At CHU Sainte-Justine, patients with pregnancy complications are followed at the Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic (also known under its old name, the High-risk Pregnancy Clinic).

A patient may have complications during pregnancy for a variety of reasons.

Complications can come from:

  • health condition of the mother before and during the pregnancy.
    For example : a woman who was previously diagnosed as diabetic, who suffers from a cardiac problem, or who develops high blood pressure during pregnancy.
  • health condition of the fetus
    For example : a baby with a growth restriction or a heart defect.

On this site you will find a wealth of information that we hope will answer the majority of your questions. Click on the complication you are interested in to obtain detailed information and find useful links. 

We have also provided numerous  two-minute videos (in French) on a variety of subjects.

For any questions that you still may have, we encourage you to write them down and bring them to your next appointment.
