Our Speciality - Obstetrics


» High-risk Obstetric Care


The term "high-risk" describes a pregnancy in which the mother or the baby experiences medical complications due to a newly developed or pre-existing disorder. This includes conditions or situations that could threaten the well-being of the mother or child such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, a history of miscarriage, symptoms of premature labor or expectation of twins, triplets or more.


As many as 10 per cent of pregnancies are considered high risk but, with expert care, 95 per cent of these special cases lead to the birth of healthy babies. The obstetricians at Flowrence Hospitals offer specialized care for high-risk expectant mothers and their babies.


» Pre-natal Testing & Diagnostics


Pre-natal tests can help identify health problems that could endanger both a woman and her unborn child. Pre-natal tests are done in the first, second and third trimesters and help a mother determine key factors about her own health that can, in turn, affect the baby's health, such as blood type, whether she has gestational diabetes, anemia or other health conditions, her immunity to certain diseases and whether she has a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or cervical cancer. In a developing child pre-natal tests can identify treatable health problems that can affect the baby's health, characteristics of the baby, including size, sex, age and placement in the uterus, the chance that a baby has certain birth defects or genetic problems and certain types of fetal abnormalities, like heart problems.


Several non-invasive and invasive techniques are available for pre-natal diagnosis. Each of them can be applied only during specific time periods during the pregnancy for maximum usefulness. The techniques employed for pre-natal diagnosis include:


  ‌• Ultrasonography

  ‌• Amniocentesis

  ‌• Chorionic villus sampling

  ‌• Fetal blood cells in maternal blood

  ‌• Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein

  ‌• Maternal serum beta-HCG

  ‌• Maternal serum estriol


» Fetal Assessment


The Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Flowrence Hospitals offers several specialized tests to determine any potential problems with the baby’s health or delivery. These include:


 ‌ • Advanced obstetrical ultrasound

 ‌  • Amniocentesis

‌   • Fetal heart rate/well-being tests

   • Non-stress test measures changes in the heart rate to determine that the baby is getting enough oxygen in the womb

‌   • Biophysical profile - an ultrasound exam that monitors the movement, body tone and breathing efforts of the baby
