Diabetes in Pregnancy

Women diagnosed with diabetes before or during pregnancy can be at risk for serious health issues, as can their unborn baby. Our unique Diabetes in Pregnancy practice offers medical care, education and diabetic supplies so women can receive everything they need in one place.

Specialized Ultrasound

Successful high-risk obstetric care requires ultrasound imaging designed around the unique needs of complex pregnancies. Our dedicated Specialized Ultrasound team is accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, which means our sonographers have undergone extensive training to exceed standards in the performance and interpretation of ultrasound exams.

This prestigious designation allows our maternal fetal medicine providers to deliver care based on imaging that relates to patients’ specific risk factors and treatment needs. By providing access to highly skilled sonographers and world-class technology, we can carefully monitor pregnancy complications and identify concerns early on so they can be addressed immediately.

Infectious Disease Obstetric Program

Our specialists provide compassionate, confidential pregnancy and childbirth care for women affected by a variety of illnesses. We offer state-of-the-art treatment based on perinatal standards and each patient’s individual needs, and our nurses and social workers help ensure access to support resources, contraceptive counseling, and ongoing infectious disease care after pregnancy.

Opioid Maintenance Clinic

Our coordinated prenatal care for pregnant women who are on maintenance therapy for opioid dependence helps deliver optimal outcomes for both mothers and infants. We closely monitor maintenance therapy to protect the health of expectant mothers and consult with neonatologists to provide the best treatment for infants born with neonatal abstinence syndrome.

Our Labor and Delivery Center

Part of ensuring a positive birth experience is creating an environment where patients and their loved ones feel comfortable and supported. Our labor & delivery center is built around making you feel at home so you can focus on your childbirth experience and new baby.

Our 15 spacious birthing rooms are designed to put you at ease while also providing access to state-of-the-art technology. Each room includes a flat screen TV and sleeper couches or chairs for two guests. Our patients have access to birthing balls, infant warmers, breastfeeding stations, and infant care and postpartum care supplies.

Should you experience complications during pregnancy or birth and require a more advanced level of care, our Level III High Risk Perinatal Unit features technologically advanced surgical and recovery rooms, as well as high-risk perinatal rooms equipped with fetal monitors.

Regional One Health is also home to a world-class NICU. Should your baby require additional care, you’ll have immediate access to the region’s best neonatology specialists and technology.
