High Risk Obstetric Consultative Services

We work with primary care providers to provide high risk pregnant women, thru consultation, co-management and direction of care with a comforting and reassuring experience through out their pregnancy. We provide consultative services for chronic diseases, multiples, (twins, triplets, and more) and fetal abnormalities.

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counselors can help patients understand how genes, medical conditions and being a carrier of a genetic disorder can affect pregnancy.  Genetic diseases are common in some families and ethnic groups. A trained counselor can assess a potential risk in a pregnancy, and help families make informed decisions regarding genetic screening.

Carrier Screening

Carrier screening is testing that is used to determine weither you or your partner are carrying a genetic mutation that could cause a serious inherited disorder in your baby. At the Center, our counselors also offer non invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) which analyzes DNA (cell free DNA) to pinpoint the baby’s risk for a number of genetic disorders, including Down Syndrome.

Nonstress Test

We offer NST testing to check on your baby’s health in a non-invasive way. This test is a common prenatal test monitoring the heartbeat and how it responds to the baby’s movement. There is no stress placed on the fetus during his test.

Management of Chronic Diseases & Pregnancies

Because of an aging childbearing population, there exists many more pregnant women with pre-existing medical conditions. The rate of pregnant woman over 35 has increased, and the treatments for chronic diseases have advanced. It is important to get chronic illnesses under control before getting pregnant. We aim to provide co­management with your primary physician for a successful pregnancy outcome.

High Resolution Ultrasound

At the Center, we utilize high resolution ultrasound technology which provides a moveable light source, both 3D and 4D imaging. We are able to assess the baby’s development of the brain, spine, face, hands and feet. Also, we utilize pulse and color doppler ultrasound to improve the accuracy of diagnosis of the heart and great vessels.

Multiple Gestations

Pregnancies with multiple gestations can lead to higher health complications for the baby and mother. We watch very closely for complications, such as intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, premature labor, associated with multiples. More women are conceiving at an older age, using infertility treatments which may increase the chance of a multiple gestation pregnancy. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care throughout your pregnancy.
