Maternal-Fetal Medicine

A high-risk pregnancy can be stressful for the mom-to-be. Whether you have a condition that will make a future pregnancy higher risk or are pregnant and experiencing complications, the Maternal-Fetal Medicine team at UI Health can help.

Our doctors specialize in providing expert, compassionate high-risk obstetrics care. We'll offer the support and advanced treatments you need to help protect your health and the health of your child.

High-Risk Pregnancy Services

Our maternal-fetal medicine doctors and staff offer a full range of high-risk obstetrics services, including:

Preconception counseling: If you're at risk for a complicated pregnancy due to advanced maternal age, previous preterm birth, or a health condition like diabetes, our team can help you understand the risks and plan a path to a safe and healthy pregnancy.

Genetic counseling: We'll help you understand the pros and cons of using genetic testing to check for congenital anomalies and heritable diseases. If you go forward with testing, we'll make sure you understand what the results mean and what treatment options are available.

Ultrasound and prenatal diagnosis: UI Health offers access to the state-of-the-art ultrasound and echocardiography equipment. Our team can use tests like these to check the health of your unborn baby and identify any areas of concern. If a congenital anomaly or other health concern is found, we will help you understand your options for addressing it.

Care for multifetal pregnancy (twins or more): Carrying more than one baby increases the risk for some complications, like preterm birth. Whether you're carrying twins or triplets - or more! - our team can provide the expert care you need to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
