High-risk pregnancy

If a doctor or a midwife detects a problem with your pregnancy during your prenatal follow-up, they will refer you to the hospital’s high-risk pregnancy (GARE) clinic.

Certain health problems require close follow-up to make sure your pregnancy progresses normally. The multidisciplinary team at the GARE clinic provides this follow‑up.

Québec Prenatal Screening Program

The Quebec prenatal screening program aims to make prenatal screening for trisomy 21, trisomy 18 and trisomy 13 available to pregnant women and couples in Quebec, on a voluntary basis. Other chromosomal anomalies exist, but are not screened by the public program, which is based on Canadian recommendations. The Quebec prenatal screening program is offered free of charge in the public health network.

Vaccination for pregnant women  

Vaccination is the best way to protect against whooping cough. The pertussis vaccine is a combination vaccine, meaning it protects against several diseases at once. Since May 2018, Quebec experts have recommended adding pertussis vaccination to the regular vaccination schedule for pregnant women. The ideal time to get vaccinated is between the 26th and 32nd week of pregnancy, and it's recommended to get vaccinated every pregnancy.  

As stipulated in the Quebec Immunization Program, vaccination of pregnant women against pertussis, diphtheria and tetanus (Tdap) is combined in a single vaccine.  

Vaccination of pregnant women is effective in preventing whooping cough in babies. Pertussis is a highly contagious disease characterized by severe coughing fits. It is caused by a bacterium that travels in droplets released into the air by an infected person, for example, when coughing or sneezing. The vaccine against pertussis, diphtheria and tetanus (Tdap) is considered safe for both mother and unborn child.  To find out more.
