Pregnancy presents a unique stress for women, and while most pregnancies progress without incident, sometimes medical conditions can impact your pregnancy and/or delivery.
Our skilled team of perinatologists (physicians who specialize in high-risk pregnancies), sonographers, nurses and genetic counselors at Presbyterian Maternal & Fetal Medicine
work together to provide state-of-the-art care and personalized attention to women who are at high risk for pregnancy complications.

If you have a high-risk pregnancy, our specialists will work with your ob-gyn to monitor your and your baby’s progress throughout your pregnancy. We may also recommend prenatal tests, such as amniocentesis
or Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)
, to help better evaluate the health of your baby prior to birth.
If your baby requires extra attention after birth, our 38-bed Novant Health Hemby Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
, located at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center in Charlotte, provides close observation, advanced medical treatment and plenty of love for premature and critically ill newborns.
