Ascension’s Maternal-Fetal medicine specialists and OB doctors provide high-risk pregnancy care for mother and baby in Central Texas.
Ascension has a personalized approach to Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM). We know pregnancy complications can cause fear and anxiety, and we help care for mother and baby during this time with compassion as well as experience.
High-risk pregnancy care
Our care team of MFM specialists, OBGYN doctors, and specially trained nurses help expectant mothers who have an existing condition like high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, or heart disease. Neonatologists and pediatric specialists are also part of the team if the baby has a fetal condition.
Every pregnancy is unique, and your care team will make a personalized plan for you and your baby, sharing it with your doctor. You receive special care and support to make sure you have the safest possible pregnancy and delivery. At Ascension Seton Medical Center, there is a neonatal intensive care and special care nurseries.
We also provide many other MFM services, including:
- Biophysical exams
- Fetal anatomy scans
- Nuchal translucency
To schedule an appointment, please call 512-324-7256.
Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
We can also provide critical care for newborns who need extra attention at our Level III NICU. We are there to take care of you if there are risks or difficulties, such as a baby arriving sooner than expected.
Our NICU is supported by the specialists of Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas for a full range of specialty services for newborns who need more complex care.
We have been caring for high-risk pregnancies for more than 35 years – longer than anyone in Central Texas.
Genetic counseling and testing is part of MFM specialty care. As part of family planning, we provide pre-conception testing to address any concerns about medical risk factors. By preparing for any emergency, we can help you and your baby have a full-term pregnancy.
