I'm hypothyroid and definitely not high risk. I had a homebirth with my first and I'm having another one in March.
Do you have Graves' Disease? I'm hypo because I no longer have a thyroid. If you have Graves', then there are certain antibody levels which could make you high risk. I went through this at 38 weeks when my antibody levels came back above normal and I had to get a level II ultrasound to see if the baby had a goiter. So no, being hypothyroid does not make you high risk but there could be other reasons why your doctor sees you as high risk.
