A Full Team of Experienced Specialists
The providers affiliated with Highland's Family Maternity Center represent the full spectrum of maternity care, including obstetrical/gynecology, family medicine, and midwifery.
Our compassionate, experienced certified nurse midwives complete our care team, offering "low-tech, high touch" care to women and families who see the personal attention for which midwives are known.
If your pregnancy requires special care, our perinatologists —experts in the high-risk care—are on hand to consult with your physician. This on-site expertise includes ultrasound and other prenatal tests, so we can predict and prepare for every possible circumstance, even before your baby is born.
Highland is the only community hospital with on-site perinatologists and a central fetal monitoring system linked to specialists at nearby Strong Memorial Hospital. The Strong team includes the area's only perinatologists and neonatologist who care for premature babies and newborns with special health needs. Our link with these specialists can often keep your baby with you in the Family Maternity Center's Special Care Nursery, instead of moving the baby to another unit for this specialized care.
Our certified lactation consultants are available for inpatient and outpatient visits as well as for telephone consultation after you leave the hospital. For more information, or to schedule an outpatient appointment, please call (585) 341-6808 or email HHlactation@urmc.rochester.edu .
