  • Advanced maternal age
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Bleeding
  • Cervical insufficiency

  • Fetal abnormalities
  • Fetal complications
  • Heart disease
  • Incompetent cervix
  • Infectious diseases
  • Intrauterine Growth Restriction (baby is too small)
  • Macrosomia (baby is too large)
  • Morbid obesity
  • Multiple gestation (twins, triplets, etc)
  • Pre-existing health conditions (hypertension, gestational diabetes)

Comprehensive Care for Your Growing Family

No two people or pregnancies are the same. You need, and deserve, specialized care that’s tailored just to you. The maternal-fetal specialists at Emory Healthcare deliver comprehensive care, including:

  • Advanced testing. Our maternal-fetal specialists offer nonstress tests during pregnancy, ultrasounds (routine and detailed), blood draws and much more to give us a clear picture of your health.
  • Education and counseling. We work hand in hand with families to help them understand an in-utero diagnosis or a health condition such as gestational diabetes.
  • Genetic screenings. We offer genetic screenings for chromosomal abnormalities, known familial conditions and other conditions. Because sometimes the best path forward starts with finding answers.
  • Preconception counseling. Planning to conceive isn’t always straightforward. That’s particularly true if you have a pre-existing condition, like a heart condition, diabetes or another health concern. Our physicians will work closely with you and your entire care team to determine your risks, steps to take to reduce those risks and the safest way for you to grow your family.
  • Ultrasounds. Ultrasounds during high-risk pregnancy help give your maternal-fetal care team answers. Our team is experienced in scanning, reading and interpreting ultrasounds.

Coordinated Care for Your Peace of Mind

We take a team approach to your care during a high-risk pregnancy, working closely with your obstetrician to keep each other informed and updated on the latest in your care. If needed, we can also refer you to the right specialist.
