High Risk Pregnancy
Ensuring the best care for high risk pregnancies
The physicians at Women’s Health and Surgery center can care for most women considered “high risk.” However, for certain conditions we may require a consultation with our physicians prior to accepting you as an obstetrical patient. This is in hopes of getting you referred to higher care centers and specialists that will best suit your needs and ensure the health of you and your baby.
We are the only ObGyn practice in the region that allows our patients to attempt a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean).
A C-section is the delivery of a baby through an incision (cut) made in the mother’s abdomen and uterus. Doctors used to believe that if a woman had one cesarean delivery, all other babies she had should be born in the same way.
Today, doctors know that many women who have had a cesarean delivery can later safely give birth through the vagina. This is called vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) delivery. VBAC can be a safe option for many women. However, it is not the right choice for all women, and there are some risks that you should discuss with your doctor.
