Placental Health Clinic

Pregnant woman looking out the window

Hypertension and fetal growth restriction affect 5 to 10 percent of pregnancies in the U.S. Women with pre-existing chronic hypertension, certain genetic diseases, kidney disease and autoimmune disorders like lupus are especially at risk for these disorders. Johns Hopkins Medicine is proud to provide patients at risk for these complications with specialized care in our Placental Health Clinic.

In the Placental Health Clinic, providers focus on promoting a healthy pregnancy and on pre- and postnatal maternal heart health. The clinic works closely with cardiology, hematology, nephrology, maternal-fetal medicine ultrasound and the Johns Hopkins Center for Fetal Therapy.

Our hope is to safeguard maternal and fetal health through close clinical follow-up, consultation with medical experts, and use of appropriate physical and serum biomarkers for screening. This helps ensure a complete and individualized plan of care to promote a healthy pregnancy.
