HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY CARE
High-risk pregnancy care is a specialized form of prenatal care for women who have an increased risk of complications during pregnancy, childbirth, or postpartum.
This care may include close monitoring of the mother and baby, as well as additional testing, treatments, or procedures to ensure the health and well-being of both.
High Risk Pregnancy Care in Newport Beach, Ca
Every woman deserves premium care throughout their pregnancy journey. But while a smooth pregnancy is everyone’s desire, it doesn’t happen all the time.
As the leading high risk pregnancy OB-GYN practice in Newport Beach, we pride ourselves in having the skills, tools, and expertise needed to help you navigate the troubled waters with ease.
No matter what, you can count on us to be there for you every step of the way.
We also cater to patients who are for the most part healthy but prone to pregnancy complications owing to:
Positive Alpha Fetoprotein test
This is a test that looks for a protein in the mother's blood that can indicate certain birth defects in the baby.
Advanced maternal age
This means the mother is over 35 years old, which can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy.
Baby’s congenital anomalies
This refers to any physical or developmental abnormalities that the baby has at birth
Fibroids or lumps in the uterus
These are non-cancerous growths in the uterus that can cause complications during pregnancy.
Expected twins, triplets, or more
This means the mother is pregnant with more than one baby, which can increase the risk of complications for both the mother and babies.
Recurring preterm (early) labor or birth
This refers to labor or birth that occurs before 37 weeks of pregnancy, which can put the baby at risk for health issues.
Untimely rupture of membranes
This means the amniotic sac (the protective bag of fluid around the baby) breaks too early, which can lead to preterm labor or infection.
Previous history of abdominal surgery
This means the mother has had surgery on her abdomen before, which can affect her pregnancy and delivery.
Repeated pregnancy loss
This refers to a history of losing pregnancies, which can indicate a higher risk of complications in future pregnancies.
We know the term “high risk” may sound alarming but that should not be the case.
It simply means that the mother requires extra attention before, during, and after their pregnancy. As such, there’s no cause for alarm provided you’re working with the safest pair of hands in town.

However, you can rest assured that we will deliver the best care possible to ensure that you carry your pregnancy full term.

We ensure that no stone remains unturned when it comes to providing you with the most advanced equipment and technology to track your baby’s growth and development.
For instance, our 3D and 4D ultrasound services unit uses cutting-edge technology to assess your fetus and that allows us to nip any complications in the bud.
We use innovative technology to observe your health as well as that of your baby. This is primarily to check if your child’s anatomy and organs are developing as they should and if they are getting sufficient oxygen. These tests comprise:
The nonstress test is used to evaluate fetal well-being and detect signs of fetal stress. Your doctor will place two external sensors on your abdomen that send signals to a monitor that records the movements of your baby’s heart rate, breathing movements, and muscle activity.
A doppler ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of blood flow. The device sends out tiny pulses of energy that bounce back when they hit something solid, such as bone or muscle tissue.
You can schedule an appointment or simply walk into our facility. Whatever your choice, you can trust us to deliver the best care. We have everything in place to ensure you are comfortable under our care.
