Care for High Risk Pregnancy - 718.780.3272
At New York Methodist Hospital, we offer expert care to expectant mothers with a high-risk health condition or obstetric complication. Our expertise ensures that our patients and their babies are as healthy and comfortable as possible during all stages of pregnancy and delivery.
Expertise in early assessment
Women who are identified with a medical condition that could complicate their pregnancy – such as heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, advanced maternal age or multiple birth – are referred to doctors who specialize in Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
We offer a wide range of fetal testing services to identify potential fetal health risks. Available test include:
- Non-Stress Testing (Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring)
- Ultrasound Evaluations (Biophysical Profiles)
- Doppler Ultrasound Evaluations
The combination of our extensive medical expertise and modern technology allows us to address complications and alleviate risk as early as possible.
Specialized fetal care
When prenatal testing reveals fetal health risks, appropriate specialists immediately assess and address potential complications. New York Methodist’s expert doctors commonly treat conditions such as:
- Fetal growth restriction
- Congenital heart disorders
- Neural tube defects
- Fetal urinary tract abnormalities
Our focused care allows us to maintain the highest level of fetal health throughout even the most difficult pregnancies. For women who require intensive care during pregnancy or delivery, our specialists in obstetric medicine provide sensitive, comprehensive treatment. Our doctors are also skilled in handling premature or complicated deliveries, ensuring that all needs of newborn and mother are met.
Flexible care for precise needs
In order to meet the precise needs of every expectant mother and child, our High-Risk Pregnancy Group offers several levels of care. We will work directly with patients or in cooperation with other physicians by providing ongoing primary care, co-management with patient’s primary doctor or consultative care.
Pregnant women seeking treatment for serious health conditions, such as cancer, receive caring, interdisciplinary treatment that serves their unique needs. Such collaborative care may include social workers, neonatologists and pediatric surgeons.
