Pregnancy and High-Risk History

High-Risk History Calls for Expert Care

If you experienced complications in a prior pregnancy, you will benefit by the reassurance and expertise of our high-risk obstetricians (maternal-fetal medicine specialists). Once you are pregnant again, we help you avoid repeated complications. Our experienced and supportive team includes your high-risk obstetrician, radiologists, surgeons, nurses and others who provide counseling, evaluation and medical and surgical care before, during and after pregnancy. Through preparation, expertise and multidisciplinary teamwork, our goal is to provide a healthy, safe delivery for every mother and child.
