It is possible to meet with a consultant obstetrician who specialises in maternal-fetal medicine to discuss ongoing medical problems or complications that have developed during pregnancy or which are threatening the healthy continuation of pregnancy. Examples might include diabetes in pregnancy, a background history of epilepsy, or high blood pressure.
The high risk nature of pregnancies with twins or triplets is well recognised. It is possible to meet with a consultant obstetrician who specialises in maternal-fetal medicine to discuss options for optimizing the outcome of these high risk pregnancies. This can include ultrasound evaluation of each fetus, such as their relative sizes and growth, as well as the state of the cervix and its associated risk of preterm delivery.
