ObstetricsHigh-Risk Pregnancy

You're in good hands.

There may be a number of factors that deem your pregnancy high risk, but that doesn't mean it will be any more difficult than a low-risk pregnancy. It simply means that a higher level of precaution and care is required. If your pregnancy is high risk, you'll work alongside our compassionate team of experts and maternal-fetal specialists to monitor your baby's progress closely and ensure a safe and healthy birth experience for everyone.

Words from Real Moms

GWH was truly amazing through my two high risk pregnancies. All of their doctors and nurses gave me comfort, care and expertise during one of the most stressful and important times in my life.

As my complications became increasingly more serious, so did their level of care and concern. Their affiliation with Dartmouth Hitchcock, one of the best hospitals in the country, allowed me to be monitored by the best maternal fetal specialist in the state. Also their partnership with Wentworth-Douglass allowed me to have my children delivered at the best hospital on the Seacoast.
