Risk pregnancy

We perform comprehensive monitoring on detecting any risk for the mother or the fetus. A paediatrician or specialist will care for the newborn, depending on each case.

According to the different characteristics of each pregnancy, your health and any complications that may arise, we classify your pregnancy as low-risk, medium-risk or high-risk. As soon as we detect any risk for the health of the mother or the fetus, we perform comprehensive monitoring throughout pregnancy.

In cases of fetal pathology, we offer prenatal multidisciplinary assistance with the specialists who will care for women once their child is born (neonatologists, cardiologists or paediatric surgeons). We also have advanced technology that allows the diagnosis and monitoring of these cases.
