Caring for Every High-Risk Pregnancy Condition
- Obesity and High Blood Pressure
- Gestational Diabetes
- Advanced Maternal Age
- Multiples Pregnancy
- Genetic Disorders
Certain lifestyle factors like obesity (a body mass index over 30) and elevated blood pressure need a higher level of attention during pregnancy to ensure you and your baby are as healthy as possible. Rest assured that you’ll have the support and guidance you need at every step here, from managing pregnancy weight gain to lowering your blood pressure.
Gestational diabetes is a temporary condition that can develop during pregnancy in women who don’t otherwise have diabetes. Pregnancy hormones can cause insulin resistance and lead to this diagnosis. We ensure expecting mothers are supported and encouraged if they receive a gestational diabetes diagnosis.

We offer specialized care and attention to expectant mothers who are 35 and older, as giving birth after this age comes with a higher risk of pregnancy complications related to genetic conditions, diabetes and hypertension.

If you’re having twins — or even triplets or another multiples pregnancy — rest assured that our maternal-fetal team will be by your side at every step. We’ll be here to answer the questions that come with a multiples pregnancy and provide the unique care, support and encouragement you need.
We offer screenings for many inherited diseases to give you answers early. A blood test can check to see if you are a carrier of a condition that could be passed on to your baby. In most cases, both you and the baby’s father would have to carry the genetic abnormality for it to be passed on.
Many insurance carriers cover this testing, although you may wish to check with your plan. Also, many genetic tests should be performed at specific times during early pregnancy. Our team will discuss your options with you during your early prenatal visits.
