Finding out you have a high-risk pregnancy doesn’t have to be stressful. We are here to help.Prenatal Care

While finding out you’re pregnant should be an exciting time in your life, it can be rather stressful to find out that you have a high-risk pregnancy. In order to protect the health of both you and your unborn child, you want to have a doctor that you can trust to provide you with comprehensive and compassionate care to ensure that you have a smooth pregnancy. Our Jackson, MS, maternal-fetal doctor, Dr. Robert Naef, III, is here to make sure that you get the care you need whenever you need it. We offer a wide range of comprehensive services for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies.

Here are just some of the amazing diagnostic services and maternal-fetal care we offer here in Jackson:

Genetic Testing

There are certain risks that can always arise during the course of one’s pregnancy. Of course, if you have a family history of certain genetic abnormalities or diseases then you may be worried that your child could develop these health problems, too. Genetic testing allows us to determine your child’s risk level for certain issues such as Down syndrome, cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anemia to put your mind at ease and to answer any concerns you may have.

High-Resolution Ultrasound

If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or diabetes then having a high-resolution ultrasound at your disposal is a major relief, as this diagnostic tool can be a great way to examine your baby’s health in a safe and completely non-invasive way. This high-resolution technology ensures that certain abnormalities, defects or health problems in the baby are detected right away so we can determine the best course of treatment.

Fetal Echocardiography

This diagnostic tool is also an ideal way to detect certain congenital heart problems within your unborn child. The sooner we can detect heart problems the sooner we can create a treatment plan that will ensure that both you and your baby remain healthy. Since certain high-risk pregnancies can increase your baby’s chances of developing a congenital heart problem, having this tool at your disposal is a major comfort.

Mississippi Maternal-Fetal Medicine in Jackson, MS, is here for you when you need it most. Pregnancy should be an exciting moment in your life. Don’t let a high-risk pregnancy take away your happiness at this joyous time. We can provide you with the care you need to give you the peace of mind you need.
