High-Risk Pregnancy

At Woodlands OBGYN Associates we are very experienced in caring for a wide variety of high risk pregnancies.

What type of high-risk pregnancies do you manage?

There are numerous maternal issues present prior to pregnancy that may impact pregnancy management and delivery plans. In addition, there are countless situations that may develop during pregnancy that change prenatal care and delivery plans.

Some of the multiple high-risk issues we routinely manage include:

Type 1 and 2 Diabetes
Gestational Diabetes
Chronic Hypertension
Preeclampsia
Twin Pregnancies
IVF Pregnancies
Advanced Maternal Age
Preterm Labor
Preterm Rupture of Membranes
Placental and Amniotic Fluid Problems
Fetal Growth Issues
History of Pregnancy Loss
History of Preterm Delivery
Preexisting Maternal Cardiac, Pulmonary, or Autoimmune Concerns

Depending on your individual situation we may send you to consult with a Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist in conjunction with your care at Woodlands OBGYN Associates.

You may also need to see other specialists such as a cardiologist, pulmonary specialist, or reproductive endocrinologist.

Your care will be individualized and tailored to meet the needs of you and your baby!

Can I have a VBAC (Vaginal Birth after Cesarean Section)?

At Woodland OBGYN Associates we do not offer VBAC as an option to our patients with a prior cesarean section. If you have had a prior Cesarean Section you will be scheduled for a repeat Cesarean Section.

If you have United HealthCare we are sure you are aware that as of 01/01/2020 Methodist Hospital is no longer in Network.

Our United HealthCare contract is NOT affected by this. We are a private practice so this will not affect our ability to see you for your appointments.

All current OB patients please speak to our staff if you have not already done so.

We are still hopeful that UHC and Houston Methodist will work out the issues and come to an agreement soon!
