Center for High-Risk Pregnancy

The Center for High Risk Pregnancy offers prenatal monitoring and consultation for expectant mothers with complicated pregnancies. The High Risk team consists of dedicated physicians, nurses, nutritionists and social workers who all provide individualized care in convenient settings. Whereever possible, women are co-managed with their obstetrical care providers so that travel is minimized.

 While we are supported by the finest high-risk obstetric service and a dedicated OB anesthesiology group, our goal is that our fetal patients spend as many weeks as possible in the best incubator in the world - their mother's womb - so that they can meet the family in the most normal, healthy way
