High-Risk Pregnancy Services You Can Trust

Your motherhood journey is unique — and your high-risk pregnancy care should be, too. When you come to AdventHealth Medical Group High-Risk Pregnancy, you can count on us to create a personalized care plan that considers your individual risks, challenges and birth wishes, keeping you and your baby’s health and safety in mind at every step.

Treating High-Risk Pregnancy Health Conditions

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, 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.

Watch our video below on avoiding gestational diabetes or read our blog about managing this diagnosis effectively.

Advanced Maternal Age (35+)

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.

Read more in this article about how we care for women over 35, featuring our maternal-fetal expert Dr. Rachel Humphrey.

Multiples Pregnancy

If you’re having twins — or even triplets or another multiples pregnancy — rest assured that our maternal-fetal medicine 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.

Learn more about how we test for and care for genetic disorders in this video.
