The High-Risk Pregnancy Center

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 Center for Women’s Wellness and Fetal Health at Missouri Baptist consistently provides 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.

In collaboration with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine, our Center is staffed by specially-trained physicians and nurses, including obstetricians, gynecologists, perinatologists, genetic counselors and ultrasonographers, to accommodate the unique needs of our high-risk patients.

Some of the services provided include:

  • Maternal-fetal medicine consultation
  • Genetic counseling
  • Amniocentesis
  • Maternal blood tests for genetic disorders and/or birth defects
  • Ultrasound services
  • Antepartum fetal testing
  • Consultations
  • Multiple births monitoring (twins, triplets and more)

Our Center also works in conjunction with the hospital's specialists in nutritional counseling, diabetes education, physical therapy and social work to meet the needs of every patient. For referral to this center, please call our physician referral line: 314-996-LIFE.
