High-Risk Pregnancy Management

We take care of many high risk pregnancies. There are a variety of different conditions that qualify as a high-risk pregnancy. Some of these are twins, high blood pressure in pregnancy, diabetes in pregnancy, poor fetal growth and thyroid disease in pregnancy.

Our practice is unique in Rhode Island in that we have 30 different protocols to guide management of high risk pregnancies. A protocol is a list of specific blood tests, ultrasounds, frequency of visits, etc. that we follow for each high risk condition. The protocols are evidence based, which means that they are derived from the best available medical research. We have agreed as a practice to follow these protocols, therefore whichever doctor or midwife you see, they will be adhering to the same recommendations.
