| What is a High Risk Pregnancy?
|A high -risk pregnancy
is one in which the health of the mother and / or unborn baby
is at risk. Women with a high - risk pregnancy are monitored
more closely during pregnancy and may need to take special precautions,
or undergo specific test or procedures in order to assure the
best possible outcome.
High Risk Obstetric Services
Women's Services has a long, rich history helping women during
an uncertain time in their pregnancy. We are one of six Perinatal
Regions in Georgia and the only hospital in Central Georgia to take
care of women with high risk pregnancies. Our staff focuses on the
medical, social, and educational needs of patients and their families.
Should mom require inpatient care, The Family Birth Center houses
12-bed private Perinatal rooms that provide inpatient monitoring,
and antenatal testing in one location. All of our rooms provide
the same amenities as the Labor and Delivery rooms. The staff of
the Perinatal Center works closely with The Family Birth Center
to ensure the best possible outcome for mom and their unborn babies.
The High-Risk Perinatal Unit is devoted to providing excellent
care of the mother who needs to be admitted prior to delivery. Using
state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, specially trained nurses
bring peace of mind to patients. Our highly trained Perinatologist
(high risk obstetrician) and neonatologists work together to ensure
the healthiest outcomes possible.
The Perinatal Center staffs a Board Certified Specialist in Maternal-Fetal
Medicine and guides the care of women during their pregnancy. Technologically
advanced perinatal testing and high-risk obstetric care is provided
by the team at The Perinatal Center in Macon which includes sonographers
and registered nurses.
