Factors for high risk pregnancies include:
- Chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes
- Family history
- Pregnancies with multiples such as twins or triplets
- History of miscarriage or pre-term labor
In such cases, Virtua's nationally recognized maternal-fetal medicine physicians, or perinatologists, partner with obstetricians to ensure the best possible chances for healthy, successful pregnancies. With their advanced training and technology, maternal-fetal medicine experts assess fetal health and provide families with seamless care, monitoring health, creating newborn treatment plan, expected prognosis, and social and psychological support.
The program was awarded a two-year accreditation in the area of "obstetric ultrasound" from the Ultrasound Practice Accreditation Council. The award is presented to practices which meet rigorous voluntary guidelines set by the diagnostic ultrasound profession.
