High-Risk Pregnancy Program

We provide ongoing care and management for women with a history of pregnancy risks, or current medical complications. Our providers follow patients closely from the point of referral to delivery and beyond. Patients receive individualized attention, and continuity of care is guaranteed throughout the pregnancy.

We are often able to co-manage problems with our patients’ primary obstetrician. However, our High-Risk Pregnancy Program provides the full spectrum of prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care for women with high-risk pregnancies.

Our Services

We offer the following specialty programs:

  • Diabetes in Pregnancy Program. This provides comprehensive services for women with diabetes before, during, and after pregnancy. Our expert team of physicians, diabetic educators, and advanced practice nurses helps initiate and manage oral hypoglycemic and insulin therapies to ensure optimal glycemic control in pregnant patients with diabetes. Our team approach has resulted in significant decreases in our patients' A1C levels, rates of fetal macrosomia (high birth weight), and incidence of pregnancy complications.
  • Hemostasis and Thrombosis Services. Our specialists provide pregnancy management for women who suffer from thrombosis, including regular consultations and treatment with blood thinners. In addition, we provide screening and primary care, as well as treatment for other blood conditions such as hemophilia.
  • Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Program. This is offered in conjunction with Yale’s Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Section. Our multidisciplinary team of pathologists, geneticists, and perinatologists uses a whole-patient approach to help couples with recurrent miscarriages and/or pregnancy losses.
  • Women & Children’s Blood Disorders Program. This program strives to improve the quality of women and children's health by addressing disorders of blood coagulation and thrombosis during the reproductive, menopausal, fetal, neonatal, and geriatric periods of life. The program also provides patient care and management for pregnant women with preeclampsia (high blood pressure, swelling, protein in the urine).
