While planning can reduce the likelihood of some complications, not all issues related to high-risk pregnancy are preventable.
Pregnancy is both an exciting and challenging time for mothers-to-be and their families. While careful planning and preparation can help to reduce the likelihood of certain complications, some issues related to high-risk pregnancies are unexpected or unpreventable.
But, with the skilled intervention of a trained maternal-fetal medicine specialist, also known as a Perinatologist, women with complications before, during or after pregnancy can experience better outcomes.
Inspira's partnership with the Penn Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) team means that board-certified, fellowship trained physicians are available 24/7. A MFM specialist is an obstetrician who has received additional training (a fellowship) and can evaluate, diagnose and monitor high-risk pregnancies. These specialists are trained with advanced prenatal technologies and will collaborate with you and your provider to increase your chances for a successful pregnancy.
Penn MFM specialists are nationally recognized leaders in all aspects of high-risk pregnancy care, medical education and perinatal research.
If you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, it’s important to understand the underlying health conditions that could contribute to a high-risk pregnancy. These include, but are not limited to:
