What age are you considered High Risk?
Thu, 05-08-2008 - 1:38pm

Hi Ladies,
Just wondering if being pregnant at 45 is going to put me in a high risk category? Will I be referred to a high risk Dr?
Have more frequent appointments? I go in next week and I am sure they will tell me all this, just wondering how the process has gone with you ladies who are further along.

Thanks. Julie
