High Risk Pregnancy Care
UnityPoint Clinic Maternal Fetal Medicine provides specialized care for pregnant women whose pregnancy may be considered high risk and may need a closer watch on their pregnancy. Our maternal fetal medicine specialists are obstetrics and gynecological physicians with an advanced multi-year fellowship in the specialty of high-risk pregnancy. After an initial consultation, our team works with your primary OB/GYN physician to provide compassionate care and monitor you and your baby.
