Perinatal services we provide

A pregnancy may be considered high-risk for a variety of reasons, including existing health conditions, maternal age, lifestyle, multiple pregnancy and health issues that happen before or during pregnancy. If you are considered high-risk, we are dedicated to ensuring that you receive the necessary support and education before, during, and after delivery.

Our specially-trained nurses provide emotional support and help educate you about your diagnosis, coordinate specialist appointments and have regular touchpoints to answer any questions or concerns. When it comes time to give birth, they will facilitate hospital readiness for your arrival and follow up after delivery with specialists or other needs.

We also have an antepartum unit with private rooms where you and your baby can be closely monitored. As a Level IIIb Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), our facility is specifically designed to care for babies born before the 26th week of gestation. In addition, we provide you with genetic screening, diagnostic testing and specialized fetal care.
