We all want a perfectly healthy, stress-free pregnancy without complications, but when Mother Nature has other ideas, the next best thing is to bring in the experts. Hackensack Meridian Health Pascack Valley Medical Center's Maternal-Fetal Medicine Department offers women dealing with high-risk pregnancies access to its specialists who work closely with a patient’s OB/GYN and provide in-depth, comprehensive care before and throughout her pregnancy. Whether a patient is dealing with a pre-existing medical condition, like diabetes, anemia, or hypertension, is of advanced maternal age, or expecting multiples, PVMC takes a team approach, offering many non-invasive or minimally invasive tests that can help a woman’s medical team better understand and manage her condition. The end goal is simple: a happy, healthy baby and a happy, healthy you. (The Maternal Fetal Medicine Department of Hackensack Meridian Health Pascack Valley Medical Center)
