High-Risk Pregnancy

If you have diabetes, a heart condition, high blood pressure or another health condition, you may be at a higher risk of developing complications before, during and after pregnancy. So it’s good to know that specialized care for high-risk pregnancies is close to home, at the Saint Francis Family Birthing Center.

Our highly skilled perinatologists (doctors who specialize in high-risk pregnancies) will work closely with your nurses and doctor to help you have a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery. 

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

If your baby needs intensive care, we offer our Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), where we can provide higher-level care for premature and critically ill babies.

If you have questions about high-risk pregnancy and the services that Saint Francis offers, please call us at (901) 820-7022.
