High-risk pregnancy care

Through The Mother Baby Center's maternal fetal care program, comprehensive care is available to pregnant women with high-risk diagnoses and obstetric concerns. Our team of specialists is led by perinatologists. Those high-risk pregnancy care experts coordinate your care from before childbirth through delivery. 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
  • are 35 or over
  • 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).

Midwest Fetal Care Center experts diagnose and treat potentially life-threatening conditions in babies before they are born. Our fetal surgeons are skilled in procedures such as fetal transfusion for anemia, fetal surgery for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome and more.

Genetic counseling

Minnesota Perinatal Physicians provides genetic testing and counseling services for families who have had trouble getting pregnant or complications with previous pregnancies.

This service is available at these locations: Coon Rapids, Minneapolis and St. Paul.
