The majority of pregnancies are low risk and their medical care will be tailored to reflect this. However, for a number of pregnant women their journey will be complicated by Maternal history (i.e age, previous pregnancy/birth history and general medical history) and pregnancy events (i.e Gestational Diabetes, Pre-eclampsia, multiple pregnancy, pregnancy induced hypertension) or other maternal or fetal variances (i.e premature labour & fetal abnormalities). These women can anticipate requiring more intensive screening and observation during their pregnancies and births.
Many of the circumstances or events that increase the risk associated with a woman’s pregnancy are unforeseen and therefore can not be anticipated when making choices about who cares for you during your pregnancy. Dr Lionel Steinberg has the experience and clinical skill to provide your care regardless of your level of risk and to adapt and tailor your clinical care according to your unique needs.
