High-Risk Pregnancy Care
Unfortunately, not all pregnancies are uncomplicated. Prematurity affects 15% of all births born in the United States. When special care is needed, you should feel comfortable that your entire healthcare team is ready and prepared. This team can consist of your primary healthcare provider, such as an Obstetrician or Midwife, Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists, Neonatologist, Pediatrician, Anesthesiologist, and even Critical Care specialists. Even when perfect prenatal care is provided, unforeseen or even expected complications may occur. It is important to know that Dr. Fong is not only properly trained and experienced in handling such situations, but that he has the proper ancillary staff and services to accommodate your needs.
Examples of high-risk pregnancies include: multiple gestations, advanced maternal age, maternal co-morbidities such as hypertension and diabetes, prior pregnancy complications, preterm labor, recurrent pregnancy loss and genetic abnormalities.
