High-risk pregnancy care
A pregnancy may be considered high-risk for a number of reasons, such as the mother's age or pre-existing medical conditions. If your OB/GYN has identified potential risk factors in your pregnancy, they may refer you to a maternal-fetal medicine specialist.
Maternal-fetal medicine physicians specifically focus on caring for mothers during a high-risk pregnancy. At The Women's Center, we have a maternal-fetal medicine doctor on staff who offers expert care to mothers with certain risk factors and/or concerns about carrying their child to full-term.
Our maternal-fetal medicine services include:
- Comprehensive assessment of conditions that may pose a risk to sustaining a pregnancy
- Diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy-related complications that may affect the mother and/or fetus
- Management of pre-existing medical conditions that may cause complications during pregnancy
