Although most pregnancies go smoothly, some expectant moms and their babies may be at increased risk for health problems that need extra attention. At Women’s Hospital at Saint Joseph East, our OB/GYN physicians provide a full range of care for women whose pregnancy may be affected by age, chronic health conditions, multiple gestation (more than one baby at a time) or other complications that may develop.
We offer state-of-the-art facilities, technology, and diagnostics to make sure you and your baby are as healthy and as safe as possible throughout pregnancy and birth. Our maternal fetal medicine specialists know just how to care for high risk patients and they’ll guide you through the special care that you’ll need.
Though it might feel alarming to get a referral to a doctor who specializes in high risk pregnancies, it doesn’t mean that something is wrong. Most often, it’s simply a precaution to make sure everything goes smoothly.
