If your pregnancy should fall into one of the high-risk categories, your care provider may refer you to the Maternal-Fetal Medicine perinatologists for help managing your pregnancy.
EvergreenHealth's Maternal-Fetal Medicine Services are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy complications, and they'll be by your side to help you manage your pregnancy complications.
In particularly complicated pregnancies, or when very close pregnancy supervision is required, Maternal-Fetal Medicine can provide complete obstetrical care.
We offer all of the specialized services needed to care for pregnancy complications:
Consultations prior to pregnancy are helpful for women with medical issues, or couples with increased risk of passing genetic abnormalities to their children.
We offer a full spectrum of screening and diagnostic tests to evaluate the health of the fetus, placenta, umbilical cord and uterine environment.
We offer the testing and analysis to determine if a pregnancy is at risk for inherited disorders or chromosomal and genetic abnormalities.
We create a customized care plan to address the special needs of pregnant women with Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes.
We provide special care and monitoring to lower the risk for preterm birth and medical problems in pregnancies where the mom is carrying two or more babies.
We conduct antepartum tests in the third trimester looking for signs of fetal distress in high-risk pregnancies.
EvergreenHealth offers the most promising treatment option for Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) - fetoscopic laser photocoagulation.
Our Fetal Therapy program provides diagnosis and treatment of complicated fetal problems that require surgery while the baby is still in the womb.
Check with your insurance carrier to find out if you need pre-authorization or a referral from your primary care provider, OB/GYN or midwife to access Maternal-Fetal Medicine Services at EvergreenHealth. Once you have appropriate pre-authorization, call to make an appointment.
We appreciate your assistance in obtaining your pertinent medical records from other care providers, along with your knowledge of family medical histories, especially those concerning pregnancy difficulties and possible inherited conditions.
