High Risk Pregnancy and Genetic Counseling

High Risk Pregnancy and Genetic Counseling


High-risk pregnancy care

You may be referred to a perinatologist (a pregnancy doctor with training in caring for high-risk pregnancies) if you

  • are pregnant with more than one baby
  • have had significant problems with previous pregnancies
  • have a health problem or develop a health problem that may worsen during pregnancy (such as gestational diabetes)
  • have a baby diagnosed with a medical condition that requires special care.

Minnesota Perinatal Physicians has provided high-risk pregnancy care for women in the five-state region. Our perinatologists care for mothers and their babies, while they are in utero (in the womb).
