What if I have a high-risk pregnancy?
The majority of pregnancies, labors, and deliveries go smoothly for both mom and baby. But if something goes wrong, there's no place you'd rather be than Baptist Health and Wolfson Children's. While all of our hospitals are prepared for emergencies, many risk-factors present well in advance and allow for careful planning. Your doctor will help determine where you should deliver.
