Sometimes having a baby is more complicated than usual. A pregnancy is considered high-risk when there are potential issues that could affect you, your baby, or both of you. Complications could include an existing diagnosis of diabetes or hypertension, being over the age of 35, previous pregnancy complications or a multiple birth. If problems do occur, you need the most advanced care available.
Our team of experts offer a spectrum of diagnostic services to assess and treat high-risk pregnancies.
Through a partnership with UW Health and Meriter Hospital Maternal-Fetal Medicine we also provide an advanced fetal screenings for all women near the 20th week of pregnancy, evaluation and consultation for high risk pregnancy; and a seamless link to advanced hospital services, if they are needed.
A maternal-fetal medicine specialist, also called a perinatologist, is an obstetrician who has received additional education and can evaluate, diagnose and monitor high risk pregnancies. Our fetal medicine obstetricians specialize in making a high risk situation less stressful for you and your baby, and help ensure a healthier pregnancy and a safer delivery.
