Maternal Fetal Medicine

University of Colorado Health offers comprehensive and advanced services for high-risk pregnancy and newborn care at Memorial Hospital Central in Colorado Springs and in Aurora through the Colorado Institute for Maternal and Fetal Health, a partnership between the University of Colorado Hospital, the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital Colorado.

Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists (obstetricians who specialize in caring for high-risk pregnancies) provide a full continuum of care, from prenatal diagnosis through delivery and follow-up care for mother and baby.

About High-Risk Pregnancy

A pregnancy is considered high-risk when there are medical complications affecting either the mother or the baby during pregnancy or birth. These complications can include, but are not limited, to:

  • Diabetes
  • Genetic problems found by prenatal testing and diagnosis
  • Heart conditions affecting the mother or her baby
  • Multiple birth
  • Past problems with miscarriages
  • Premature labor or birth, or past problems with them

After delivery, you and your baby will have access to the Rocky Mountain region’s top medical specialists.

If your baby needs intensive care after birth, he or she may be transferred to the neonatology team and stay in one of our state-of-the-art NICUs.

Babies with cardiac defects will be cared for by pediatric cardiologists, cardiac intensivists and pediatric cardiology nurses in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at the Heart Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado.
