  Background: Women with high-risk pregnancies with problems in their personal life, family and social encounter that changes of pregnancy can have an impact on their quality of life, this study aimed to determine and compare the quality of life in patients at high and low risk pregnancies .

  Methods: In this study two groups (50 patients in each group) of pregnant women as high-risk and low-risk pregnancies were selected non-random sampling method from patients, who were referred to Perinatology clinic of Motahhari Hospital in 2013. Personal satisfaction, quality of life questionnaires were completed for them in two-part (demographic and the short form sf-36). The data was analyzed with SPSS/win 18, and x2 test and t-test used with significant at p ≤ 0.05 .

  Result: The mean score for most domains of quality of life in high risk pregnant women between low risk pregnancies is low. Albeit not statistically significant (p>0.05).

  Conclusion: In contrast to other studies of low risk and high risk pregnancies that quality of life is significantly associated with lower score in high risk pregnancies, however, such a relationship was not observed in our study, perhaps because of their awareness of maternal care or special attention of midwives, doctors in perinatology center for education and the treatment of the mothers .
