High-risk pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy indicates that there is a higher likelihood of a disease or condition that may put you or your baby at risk. This may be because of an existing health condition, a multiple pregnancy or even your age.

High-risk pregnancy care we offer

At our Center for Maternal-Fetal Health, we offer experienced and compassionate high-risk pregnancy care.

Maternal-fetal health program

Our Center for Maternal-Fetal Health provides high-risk pregnancy care in collaboration with referring OB/GYNs. Patients may be referred to our program for additional monitoring and care due to a condition affecting the expectant mother or a condition that developed in the baby (or babies).

Many women are referred for high-risk care because of pre-existing health conditions, advanced maternal age (mothers 35 years old and older), or conditions that arise during pregnancy. Our specialized physician and support staff are highly experienced in providing a full spectrum of maternal-fetal care — from preconception to labor and delivery.

To learn more, contact us at (303) 320-7101 or call our high-risk pregnancy navigator at (720) 216-4290.

Antepartum unit

Sometimes you may need to spend more time in our hospital so your obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) or midwife can keep a closer eye on your pregnancy. In these cases, our welcoming, modern inpatient antepartum unit provides you with upgraded rooms and special amenities for a comfortable stay.

Each of our antepartum rooms is spacious, light and bright, and each one is equipped with a big soaking tub and an Apple TV. Your OB/GYN can check on you there, and we offer round-the-clock coverage by our maternal fetal medicine doctors (also called high-risk pregnancy doctors or perinatologists).

Gestational diabetes program

If you have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, education and medication management are available through either our diabetes center or our Center for Maternal-Fetal Health. Your OB/GYN will refer you to the best location for you based on the severity of your condition and your health goals.

Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Although not all high-risk pregnancies lead to a baby spending time in the NICU, some do next extra support after birth. Our hospital is equipped with a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), so your baby can receive the attentive, gentle care they need to grow healthy and strong.

High-risk pregnancy patient navigators

A high-risk pregnancy can be overwhelming. We understand this feeling and offer you coordinated care from high-risk patient navigators.

What does a pregnancy nurse navigator do?

From your initial diagnosis through delivery, your assigned patient navigator serves as your advocate, educator and supporter.

Your navigator also acts as a central point of contact, helping to coordinate care and communication among your care team, including specialists, OB/GYNs, surgeons, therapists and nursing staff.

You can learn more about our high-risk pregnancy navigator by calling us at (720) 216-4290.
