We are providers of high-risk pregnancy services. A maternal-fetal medicine specialist has an additional three years of specialty obstetrics education. This training provides more experience in obstetrical, medical and surgical complications of pregnancy, also referred to as high-risk pregnancies.
Our providers are experts in prenatal diagnosis and are trained in using advanced, 4-D ultrasounds and specialized testing to diagnose potential birth defects or genetic disorders.
Common conditions of high-risk pregnancies:
- Advanced maternal age (age 35 or older)
- Accreta/Percreta evaluation and management
- Autoimmune disorder
- Congenital anomalies
- Clotting problems
- Diabetes in pregnancy
- Fetal disorders
- Heart disease
- Hypertension (high blood pressure) in pregnancy
- Medical complications in pregnancy
- Multiple gestation
- Perinatal infection
- Previous stillbirth and/or previous congenital anomalies (birth defects)
- Previous history of premature labor
- Recurrent pregnancy loss
- Thyroid disorders
Our maternal-fetal medicine program offers every high-risk patient, whether in the hospital or at one of our locations, a perinatal coordinator. This specially trained nurse will make sure both mom and baby get the care they need while answering any questions about pregnancy and delivery.
