Medicine for high risk pregnancy

Evaluating risks before conception and during your first trimester and beyond can minimize medical problems that may affect you or your pregnancy. First trimester screenings, advanced ultrasound, chorionic villus sampling and much more… our specialists provide the expert diagnostics you need. The High Risk Pregnancy Center offers the most advanced tests available anywhere combined with our perinatology specialists’ in-depth knowledge and experience with virtually every concern that could affect you or your growing baby. We are one of the few research and teaching sites in the United States for Philips Ultrasound, giving us ultrasound capabilities that are unsurpassed in Nevada. State-of-the-art ultrasound We perform first trimester ultrasound scans between 11 and 13 weeks that allow us to assess your risk for chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome, major fetal abnormalities such as spina bifida, and heart defects.
Fetal echocardiography Using cutting edge ultrasound, our maternal fetal medicine specialists assess the baby’s heart structure and function in utero. High Risk Pregnancy Center serves patients in Las Vegas, Spring Valley, Henderson & Boulder City – plus all of Nevada, Utah, Arizona and throughout the United States. Our high-risk pregnancy specialists save lives, manage complicated conditions, and deliver state-of-the-art treatment for women and their babies.


The maternal-fetal medicine specialists at Saint Peter's provide unique and highly skilled medical care to women experiencing high risk pregnancy.
Saint Peter's Pregnancy Loss Evaluation Service offers diagnostic services and treatment to couples who have lost multiple pregnancies with the goal of bringing a pregnancy to full term. The High Risk Pregnancy Center provides superior genetic counseling as well as state-of-the-art screenings that give us advanced monitoring capabilities few in the U.S.

We work closely with your referring obstetrician and then talk with you to identify all potential risks to your pregnancy.
This allows for a high level of detection of some chromosome problems without the risk of miscarriage associated with invasive tests. It’s also used to evaluate fetal lung maturity to help determine the safest time for delivery.


With CVS, we are able to detect many genetic abnormalities in the 11th or 12th week of your pregnancy—five to six weeks earlier than with amniocentesis. Powered by research conducted at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, our team of physicians, nurses, and sonographers offer cutting edge clinical management in maternal-fetal medicine (high-risk obstetrics), fetal therapy, high-resolution ultrasound, and safer, less-invasive prenatal testing.
We are licensed and equipped to manage the most complicated pregnancies and the most medically fragile newborns. Because we were members of one of the original groups performing the research for this technology—the only center participating in Nevada—we are especially proficient in understanding the nuances of this new screening. Our specialists can reduce the average risk of complication of spontaneous miscarriage after amniocentesis by up to 90%.
