High-Risk Deliveries

It is a fact. Not every pregnancy is easy and not every delivery goes exactly as planned. And certain factors like age, diabetes, blood pressure or other genetic or physical conditions may increase risk for some mothers.

Fortunately, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center offers some of the most advanced technology, testing and services in the region.
