High Risk Pregnancy
The obstetricians and midwives of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital Plymouth Ob/Gyn and Midwifery enjoy a unique collaboration, whereby all patients, even those with high risk pregnancies or deliveries can opt for the support of both an obstetrician and a midwife. Together we work to ensure you have a complete understanding of your pregnancy and delivery options, and that your care choices are honored.
We have a close relationship with the Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. An MFM specialist is on-site weekly for high-risk ultrasounds, consultations and discussions regarding genetic complications. The BIDH-P providers have 24/7 access to the MFM specialists for advice and second opinions. This enables our providers to co-manage most high-risk pregnancies locally with great outcomes.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is our tertiary care partner, accepting transfer of patients with pregnancies that benefit from the coordinated, highest level of care that they offer.
