High-Risk Care Before Pregnancy
Our perinatologists are board-certified obstetricians-gynecologists who complete additional years of fellowship training in maternal-fetal medicine. They provide care for both the mother and fetus before and during high-risk pregnancies and deliveries.
High-Risk Pregnancy Consultations
If you have an existing medical concern that may complicate your pregnancy, our team will perform a high-risk pregnancy consultation. In addition to our perinatologists (also referred to as maternal-fetal medicine specialists), you may meet with our nurse midwives and nurse practitioners, genetic counselors, and other specialists. They work with your doctors to plan for conception and ensure you can achieve a healthy pregnancy.
Existing Medical Concerns
These conditions would be discussed during a high-risk pregnancy consultation:
- An existing condition such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, lupus, bleeding disorder or a seizure disorder that could affect your pregnancy
- History of complications such as cervical incompetence, miscarriage, preterm delivery, or multiple births
- A genetic disorder that may affect the health of your child
- Maternal conditions such as a pelvic mass that may require surgical intervention
