Routine obstetrical care at our practice is what we call the care we give to the mother and developing baby. However, we are acutely aware that each pregnancy and baby is special to the parents-to-be, and we make every effort to make your experience smooth and stress-free.

High Risk Pregnancy Care

Your pregnancy is generally considered high-risk if you or your baby has any increased chances of complications during pregnancy. Do not get alarmed by the term High-Risk, it’s really to stratify your prenatal care to make sure that, you receive close monitoring to ensure that your pregnancy out come is safe. Our physician watch her patients closely to identify problems early.

Being called “high-risk” does not mean you will have problems with your pregnancy. Typically, high-risk applies to women with:

  • Diabetes
  • Fetal genetic conditions (Down’s syndrome, heart, lung and kidney problems)
  • High blood pressure
  • Advanced maternal age (Mother-to-be is over 35)
  • Previous miscarriages
  • Multiple pregnancy
  • If your baby is not developing or growing as it should.
  • Problematic previous pregnancy, history of preterm delivery or uterine surgery

Your pregnancy may also be considered high-risk, if you have been diagnosed with asthma, heart valve problems, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or sickle cell disease. To put your mind at ease, just talk to us about any current health problem you’re concerned about.

On-Site Ultrasound

Ultrasound and Sonograms during pregnancy are important to obtain important information such as the pregnancy due date, ruling out ectopic pregnancy, uterine and placental issues, cervical measurements, amniotic fluid changes, estimated fetal weight, fetal measurements.

On-Site Fetal Monitoring

Fetal heart rate monitoring is especially helpful if you have a high-risk pregnancy.

Fetal heart rate monitoring may be used in other tests, including:

  • Nonstress test. This measures the fetal heart rate pattern.
  • A biophysical profile (BPP). This test combines a nonstress test with ultrasound which does placental function assessment.
