High-Risk Pregnancy

Your pregnancy is a very special time in your life, but sometimes women and babies need a little extra care. In the US, about 10-20% of pregnancies are considered high-risk and require extra treatment beyond routine care by your obstetrician. SSM Health maternal-fetal medicine experts offer specialized care for you and your baby in the event you experience complications during your pregnancy.
