High Risk Pregnancy

High Risk Pregnancy

For some women, pre-existing health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or asthma make their pregnancies risky from the start.

But even normal pregnancies can become complicated quickly when unforeseen conditions arise, like pre-term birth, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, or hypertension

That’s why we collaborate with our maternal-fetal medicine team to deliver a wide array of diagnostic tests and services, right here at Mountain View Hospital. 

If you’d like a consultation with a Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician, please call 866-887-3999.
