Dr Burger specialises in high risk obstetrics, which involves caring for women who need closer monitoring during pregnancy than normal, due to pregnancy complications. Often women whose pregnancies are complicated need to be admitted to hospital much sooner prior to delivery than in a normal pregnancy. A high risk pregnancy can be defined as one that involves a danger to the mother’s health or health of the foetus. This can include previous problem pregnancies, pregnancy of more than one baby, and being over the age of 35.
