What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy is one in which some condition puts the mother or the developing fetus (or both) at an increased risk for complications during or after pregnancy and birth.

Why might I need to be treated at the High Risk Pregnancy Center?

The High Risk Pregnancy Center is a maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) practice, and we’re here to help women who may have an increased risk for complications during their pregnancy. Patients come to us for our advanced ultrasound exams and our enhanced expertise in diagnosing and treating problems. However, the majority of first-time patients we see have only a minimal risk for complications, and most go on to deliver healthy babies.

Why should I have my ultrasounds done by a maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialist?

Recent studies have shown that women who have had advanced testing performed by MFM specialists, have a 3-fold increase in detection of abnormalities in comparison to community-based radiology or ob/gyn offices. In one recent study done in Las Vegas and published in the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, 100% of fetal heart defects requiring surgery were detected by MFM specialists, in comparison with only a 35% detection rate in general obstetrician and radiology centers. By diagnosing these kinds of problems early, we can work with your primary doctor, obstetrician or pediatrician to give you the very best chance at a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

What procedures do MFM specialists perform?

The MFM specialists at the High Risk Pregnancy Center (HRPC) are highly trained in obstetric ultrasound, and we perform both screening and diagnostic examinations of the fetus, placenta, uterus, and cervix at key times during gestation. In addition to common obstetric procedures such as amniocentesis and cesarean delivery, HRPC physicians have specialized training in chorionic villus sampling (CVS), percutaneous umbilical cord sampling, fetal transfusion, fetal biopsy, and diagnostic fetoscopy. We also perform procedures specific to multiple gestations such as multifetal pregnancy reduction and laser photocoagulation of placental anastomoses in twin-twin-transfusion syndrome. MFM specialists may also be involved in procedures related to critically ill patients, including cesarean hysterectomy, placement of central lines, intubation, and ventilation.

I have chronic health conditions and I’m pregnant. Should I be monitored by an MFM specialist?

You may need to be under the care of an MFM specialist during your pregnancy if you suffer from certain chronic medical conditions. The most common include hypertension, diabetes, seizure disorders, autoimmune diseases, and blood clotting disorders. Certain infectious diseases that can affect both mother and child, such as HIV, cytomegalovirus, and parvovirus are often managed by MFM specialists as well. MFM specialists provide care for women who are at increased risk for preterm birth (including those with multiple gestations), women with cervical insufficiency who may require a surgery to prevent preterm birth, and women with placental problems such as bleeding from premature separation (placental abruption). In addition, MFM specialists are often responsible for the management of preterm labor, premature rupture of membranes, and other complications during labor that have the potential to impact newborn and long-term infant outcomes.

What common fetal illnesses are managed by maternal-fetal medicine specialists?

Numerous fetal illnesses and abnormalities are managed by MFM specialists. These include structural malformations (birth defects), chromosomal abnormalities, genetic syndromes, cardiac arrhythmias, blood disorders, congenital infections, and intrauterine growth abnormalities. Because MFM specialists are specially trained in diagnostic ultrasound, they can play an important role in screening for fetal chromosome abnormalities and birth defects. For optimal care, certain birth defects, such as neural tube defects (spina bifida) and congenital heart defects require a multidisciplinary approach, and MFM specialists often coordinate this in preparation for delivery. Pregnancies complicated by fetal illness may require specialized care that can include fetal testing, interventions, and determining the timing and route of delivery to optimize neonatal outcome.
