Every pregnancy deserves special treatment. But when a normal pregnancy becomes complicated or a woman with medical issues becomes pregnant, she needs highly specialized care.

Specialized Care for Special Pregnancies Women & Infants Hospital is pleased to announce that we now offer New England's ONLY fully integrated center for the care of women with high-risk pregnancies and their developing fetuses.
A Collaborative Relationship for the Best Possible Care
The program works collaboratively with community obstetricians, medical providers, and nurse midwives to address medical, obstetric, fetal and genetic issues prior to, during and after pregnancy. This unique constellation of services offers unparalleled assurance that patients and their doctors can receive the state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary guidance that these special women and these tiniest patients so deserve.
Integration of Services Means Better Patient Outcomes
Our goal is to work with community-based obstetric providers to offer the highest level of care. The integration of high-risk pregnancy specialists in one program means that the best minds are working together for the best outcomes. Learn more
Who Can Refer Patients to this Program?
Pregnant patients are referred to Women & Infants' Integrated Program for High-Risk Pregnancy by internists, obstetricians, gynecologists, and other specialists who seek consultation and recommendations to help identify and provide treatment for the most complicated medical problems in pregnancy.
Non-pregnant patients with medical issues or concerns about getting pregnant may be referred for preconception counseling.
Because pregnancy may be predictive of future health problems, we also provide a long-term risk assessment as part of the postpartum visit.
Will each patient's obstetric provider still take care of her once referred to this program?
We maintain close contact with referring providers at all times to ensure a smooth transition after delivery. Our staff is available 24 hours a day for emergency room, inpatient and outpatient consultation at Women & Infants Hospital.
Referring physicians and their patients may choose to have our team of specialists see patients for a one-time consult, provide consultative clinical care throughout the pregnancy, or manage the delivery and postpartum period. Patients are evaluated by both the high-risk obstetric provider and other specialists as needed, and a coordinated plan of care is developed in collaboration with the primary obstetric provider. We maintain contact with the patient's other health care providers to assure a smooth transition back to the primary care provider after delivery.
