A pregnancy where the baby and mother may have an increased chance of a health problem is termed as a high-risk pregnancy. Whatever the complication; our team of dedicated doctors, backed by state-of- the-art infrastructure, are here to provide you with the highest level of care with tremendous compassion and understanding.
The high risk pregnant patient can come with bad obstetric history or with a well-recognized medical complication. The majority of high risk pregnant patients are women who in the course of otherwise normal pregnancies, develop unexpected severe complications which require difficult management decisions with occasionally compromised foetal or maternal outcome.
This team is led by maternal foetal medicine specialists (also known as perinatologists) − obstetrician / gynaecologists specializing in high-risk pregnancies. Prior to delivery, the perinatologists and neonatologist meet with other team members, including neonatal nurse practitioners and respiratory therapists, to plan appropriate interventions in the delivery room and new-born intensive care unit. The entire team is present during delivery, and many of these same specialists provide follow-up care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
