UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Perinatal Center

Perinatal medicine is the health field that provides care for women and their fetuses who have risk for complications. These pregnancies are often referred to as "high risk."

A perinatologist is an obstetrician-gynecologist with additional training in high-risk obstetrics. The perinatologists at the UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Perinatal Center are ready to work with you and your physicians to determine what is best for you and your unborn baby.

Consultation services at the UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Perinatal Center allow the patient and physician to discuss the issues concerning the pregnancy and develop a plan for care. Some patients will receive their primary care and delivery from the obstetrician, family practice doctor or midwife and visit with the perinatologist periodically.

  • Ultrasound evaluation provides an assessment of fetal anatomy. Routine and advanced ultrasound examinations are performed by registered sonographers and are reviewed by the perinatologist.
