High-Risk Pregnancy Care in Towne Lake, Georgia

High-Risk Pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy requires special care and extra attention so that both mom and baby continue to thrive. At Cherokee Women’s Health, our highly-qualified doctors specialize in high-risk pregnancy and are dedicated to providing women with compassionate, caring and competent obstetric care.

Cherokee Women's Health works to achieve and maintain national ultrasound accrediation.

Together, we partner with Northside Hospital Cherokee to focus on creating an individualized treatment plan to ensure the health of both mom and baby. A high-risk pregnancy can be a scary diagnosis, but our doctors carefully guide women through pregnancy and delivery by being proactive with treatment to minimize complications.

What Makes a Pregnancy High-Risk?

The label of high-risk is given for several reasons, including the following:

  • Diabetes (this includes Type I, Type II, and gestational diabetes)
  • Advanced Maternal Age — Women over the age of 35 are considered to be of advanced maternal age, and will need extra monitoring throughout the pregnancy.
  • Preexisting Conditions — Women who have certain preexisting conditions may be considered high-risk. It is important to fully disclose health history so that you can be assessed as high-risk. This can include autoimmune disorders, seizure disorders, heart disease, or infectious diseases.
  • Hypertension
