Pregnancy & Childbirth

Pregnancy & Childbirth

Most pregnancies follow a routine course through nine months of growth and development. However, in some instances – whether through external factors or a mother’s health issues – a pregnancy is termed “high-risk.”

Some health concerns that may qualify you as a high-risk pregnancy include:

  • Severe Anemia
  • Preterm labor
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Hypertension, pre-eclampsia
  • Bleeding in pregnancy
  • Amniotic fluid problems
  • Rh Disease
  • Maternal and fetal infections
  • Post-term pregnancy
  • Digestive and liver disorders
  • Multiples (twins or triplets)
  • Prior pregnancy loss

Dr. Brown has years of experience with high-risk situations. He and his team take great care in creating a care plan that fits your needs and meets your specific health challenges. This plan usually includes more prenatal screenings and tests and more office visits.

On occasion, Dr. Brown will recommend a high-risk specialist (perinatologist). These doctors are trained specifically in the care of high-risk mothers and babies. Dr. Brown and the perinatologist work closely together to provide the best care possible.
