High risk Pregnancy
Our practice has long standing experience in managing high-risk pregnancies. These include:
- Multiple gestation pregnancies
- Women with hypertensive, kidney and thyroid disorders
- Advanced maternal age
- Previous complicated pregnancies
- Blood clotting disorders
Our maternal team of obstetricians and sonographers use the latest equipment to provide antenatal testing procedures and fetal surveillance throughout the pregnancy.
We also have a close relationship with both the maternal fetal departments at Howard County General Hospital (a division of JHU), and the Center for Advanced Fetal Care at the University of Maryland. Howard County General Hospital has a level III+ designation for their nursery, allowing them to provide care to the smallest and most at-need babies following their birth.

- Heart conditions
- Kidney conditions

- Sexually transmitted diseases
