High-risk pregnancy, known as Maternal-Fetal Medicine, is specialized obstetrics care that handles high risk or difficult pregnancies.
Pregnancy can be a joyous time, full of expectation and hope. But for women with pre-existing medical conditions, such as diabetes, or for those who experience an unplanned event, such as preterm labor or placental abnormality, pregnancy can be more complicated and challenging both physically and emotionally.
Our team of Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians collaborate with primary obstetricians to provide specialized care to women at risk for pregnancy complications. We work with a team of highly skilled and accomplished physicians, nurses and other experts to help ensure a safe and healthy delivery for you and your baby.
All of our specialists are trained in a board certified maternal-fetal medicine fellowship program and have extensive experience in managing high-risk pregnancies. Our goal is to minimize your stress and anxiety by providing timely diagnostic information, exemplary care, coordinated services and compassionate support and guidance.
Our techniques and technologies are state-of-the-art. Our approach is collaborative. And our promise is to treat each patient we are privileged to serve with warmth, dignity and respect.
