High-Risk Pregnancy? How a Perinatologist Can Help
Perinatologists provide specialized care to help you safely get through a complicated or high-risk pregnancy. Pregnancy is an amazing process but sometimes complications arise that may put you or your baby at risk. You might need extra care before or during your pregnancy. If so, your OB/GYN may recommend that you see a doctor called a perinatologist.
Perinatologists are obstetricians and gynecologists with special training in high-risk pregnancies. They are also called maternal-fetal medicine specialists. If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, a perinatologist may be part of your health care team and can help guide you through your pregnancy.
