High Risk Pregnancy Center for Mother and Baby
In some cases, a pregnancy may be considered high-risk, requiring additional medical care for the health of the expectant mom and her unborn baby. This can be an alarming situation for expectant parents. Fortunately, there are advanced medical services and extraordinarily supportive staff available at Missouri Baptist to help parents get through the process.
Our two on-site locations consistently provide the critical clinical expertise necessary to support a healthy pregnancy and birth. We specialize in caring for expectant mothers diagnosed as high-risk and those expecting twins, triplets or multiples.

BJC Medical Group Maternal Fetal Medicine at Missouri Baptist Medical Center
