High-risk pregnancy doctors in Florida
Finding out you are pregnant can a be a moment full of emotions. When you expect it will be a high-risk pregnancy — or when you've been told you have one — we understand those emotions only become more complicated. That's why we provide complete high-risk prenatal care to support you through every step of your pregnancy journey.
At HCA Florida Healthcare, our network of hospitals in Florida provides access to compassionate high-risk obstetricians (OB/GYNs). These physicians have extensive experience caring for women who have high-risk pregnancies.
Conditions that may make a pregnancy high risk
Our high-risk OB/GYNs have experience with a wide range of high-risk pregnancy conditions, including but not limited to:
- Advanced maternal age (35 years old and older)
- Carrying multiples
- Coagulation defects in pregnancy
- Gestational diabetes
- Hematologic abnormalities associated with pregnancy
- Intrauterine growth restriction
- Placenta previa
- Preexisting maternal conditions, such as anemia, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity
- Pregestational diabetes mellitus
Our high-risk pregnancy program
We tailor our services to your needs, ensuring you receive the type of care and support that is just right for you.
Comprehensive high-risk prenatal care
Our high-risk pregnancy services are an extension of our prenatal care services. This means that we provide all the high-risk prenatal care you and your baby need, as well as family-centered prenatal education to help you prepare for labor and delivery and parenthood.
Some of our educational opportunities include labor and delivery tours and maternity classes, such as breastfeeding, childbirth preparation and newborn care classes.
High-risk pregnancy services
Some of our high-risk prenatal care services include:
- Assessment of conditions that may compromise a pregnancy
- Diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy-related complications affecting mom, baby or both
- Management of preexisting conditions, which may be complicated by pregnancy
- Follow-up care after abnormal prenatal screening tests
- Follow-up care after birth to make sure you and your baby are recovering and doing well
Antepartum inpatient hospital stays
Sometimes, expectant mothers require bed rest and close monitoring prior to labor and delivery. For this reason, some of our hospitals offer antepartum stays (inpatient hospital stays during the later stages of pregnancy before the baby is born).
If your high-risk OB/GYN says you need antepartum care, our highly trained maternity teams will partner with your doctor for your care. We will do everything we can to help you feel at home and comfortable during your stay.
Neonatal intensive care
Many of our hospitals are equipped with neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Here, we have neonatal doctors and nurses who care for ill and premature newborn babies.
If your little one needs to stay in one of our NICUs after birth, we provide family-centered neonatal care. Your baby's care team partners with you for your child's medical care, keeping you informed, answering your questions and supporting you every step of the way.
Our high-risk pregnancy teams
At HCA Florida Healthcare, it is our privilege to care for you and your baby, which means we bring our best resources to your care.
Our high-risk pregnancy doctors, also called perinatologists or maternal-fetal medicine physicians, have years of experience partnering with women facing high-risk pregnancies. These physicians are supported by specialized care teams as well as our statewide network of resources, including imaging services, maternity hospitals and other specialists.
From the moment you need high-risk pregnancy care, our goal is simple — to provide the compassion and expertise you need to feel supported and secure during pregnancy.
