Preconception

As you begin your journey to motherhood, trust that you are in good hands. Our maternal-fetal care specialists diagnose and treat women with existing health conditions that may lead to complications during pregnancy. We also assist women who would like to expand their family, but had prior pregnancy complications. Our patient-centered process and planning ensures the best possible outcomes for you and your baby.

A high-risk pregnancy consultation prior to conception is recommended if you have a chronic medical condition or other health concerns. These concerns may include a history of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, epilepsy, thyroid disease, anemia, autoimmune conditions, eating disorders, or allergies. By taking care of yourself first, you are already anticipating motherhood and preparing your body for conception.

We welcome the opportunity to see women before pregnancy to review their medications and/or discuss chronic conditions to ensure these are optimized before pregnancy.
