No, the databases contain a mix of primary and secondary sources. In this case, when researching something like high-risk pregnancies, primary sources are referring to original research.
The best method for finding original research is by seeking out peer-reviewed (AKA scholarly) articles. Use a database like CINAHL or ProQuest Nursing and check off the Peer-reviewed box on the search screen.
Checking off the box will limit your research to peer-reviewed articles.
