Our goal is to provide you and your baby with the very best chance of experiencing a healthy pregnancy outcome. When you experience complications during pregnancy or you are told that your pregnancy is considered high risk, you probably have many questions and concerns. This is precisely our area of expertise. We will answer your questions and address your concerns.
During a pre-conception consultation, we discuss any potential risk factors that may result in a complicated pregnancy, including underlying maternal medical conditions such as diabetes, clotting disorders (thrombophilias), autoimmune disorders and inherited genetic disorders; advanced maternal age; and previous pregnancy loss or complications. Together, we create a plan to ensure that your pregnancy is off to a healthy start.
Maternal-Fetal Medicine (High-Risk Pregnancy) Consultations

- Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT)
- First Trimester and Sequential screening (Quad screen)
- Chorionic villus sampling (CVS)
