High-Risk Pregnancies

Last Visited »

We have additional expertise when you need it. The Women’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial specializes in high-risk maternity care. Pregnancy after age 35, mothers with diabetes, a history of preterm labor or miscarriage, and carrying twins, triplets, or quadruplets can make a pregnancy higher risk, for example. Our ante-partum unit staff members care for pregnant women who require close monitoring and specialized care before delivery. And as a Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center, we have specialists available 24/7.

Maternal high blood pressure is one condition that can increase perinatal risk. For this reason, Jackson North Medical Center is proud to be one of six hospitals to achieve the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative’s Hypertension in Pregnancy Initiative Bronze Level Improvement for 2016-2017.

Fetal Care

Jackson Memorial Hospital is staffed with experts in prenatal diagnosis and the treatment of complex fetal conditions. Most often, fetal care is indicated because the fetus’ life is at risk.

Generally, the earlier the prenatal diagnosis, the better the survival rate and outcome.

We offer a wide range of diagnostic techniques, including high-resolution ultrasound, chorionic villus sampling, placental biopsies, genetic testing, cordocentesis (sampling of the umbilical cord) and diagnostic fetoscopy.
