Every family looks forward to a healthy pregnancy and to the birth of a healthy newborn. And, for the vast majority of women, pregnancy follows a fairly routine course. But, for some, there may be unexpected difficulties and challenges along the way with a high-risk pregnancy.
While many complications are unavoidable, with the help of your physician, you can minimize your risks and work toward the healthiest pregnancy possible. Fortunately, advances in technology have helped improve the care of both mothers and unborn babies. Being as healthy as possible before becoming pregnant, and getting early and regular prenatal care during pregnancy, are important ways to take the best care of you and your developing baby.
The Fetal Concerns Center of Wisconsin, a cooperative effort of Children's Hospital and the Froedtert and the Medical College Birth Center, provides consultation and support throughout the pregnancy, delivery and the baby's first year. Learn more about Fetal Concerns Center services.
