Our Specialty Services
Using the latest in technology, we offer you prenatal care that’s on the cutting edge – for the best possible outcomes.
This is done throughout pregnancy to guide our care in improving your chances of having a healthy baby. Ultrasound is used to evaluate the baby for abnormalities and growth, to evaluate risk factors that could lead to early delivery and assess whether the baby might require early delivery or intervention. This includes 3-D ultrasound to see detailed information – giving parents the thrill of seeing their unborn baby’s face.
Amniocentesis is a prenatal test to detect genetic or chromosomal abnormalities, determine the baby’s lung development if an early delivery is required, or check the well-being of the baby for mothers who have blood sensitization or other issues.
Integrated Screenings are combination of first trimester and second trimester blood tests and ultrasounds, this is the safest and most accurate testing available to screen for birth defects.
Management/co-management of pregnancy complications
Whether there is a medical problem such as diabetes, hypertension or recurrent pregnancy problems with the mother, or an anomaly or problem with the fetus, we provide ongoing guidance and care to optimize the outcome of the pregnancy.
