Exceptional Mother and Baby Care for the Unexpected

    Specialized OB Emergency Services

    A health emergency during pregnancy requires a special level of care. Our obstetric emergency department (OBED) — an extension of our main emergency room
    — provides you with experienced hospitalists who are specialists in obstetric medicine and are available around the clock.

    The OBED treats pregnancy- and postpartum-related concerns like abdominal pain, preterm labor, preeclampsia, abnormal vaginal bleeding, ruptured membranes, labor checks, bladder infections, decreased fetal movement and increased blood pressure.

  • NICU Baby

    Compassionate, Expert NICU Care

    In the face of the unexpected, let us meet your expectations. If your baby needs extra care after delivery, rest easier knowing you're steps away from a leading-edge Level III NICU, staffed 24/7 with board-certified neonatologists, neonatal respiratory therapists, rehabilitation experts and specialized nurses.

    Your new baby is your everything, and you want to be intimately involved in their care. We'll include you in every decision, encourage visits in our family-centered environment and give you all the support you need.

Caring for Every High-Risk Pregnancy Condition

Obesity and High Blood Pressure

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

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.

Advanced Maternal Age

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.

Multiples Pregnancy

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.

Genetic Disorders

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.
