For many women, the experience of conceiving or carrying a baby may be stressful and emotionally-challenging. They may experience pregnancy complications, or be at risk for pre-term birth (delivering more than three weeks before the due date). They may have a history of miscarriage, be dealing with a chronic disease or have a genetic condition that has made their dream of being a mother more difficult. Fortunately, for a majority of these women, they can find reassurance when cared for by a Geisinger maternal-fetal medicine specialist who comprehensively cares for the mother and her unborn child.

In the event your baby needs specialized care before going home, they may require a stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for evaluation and monitoring, or they may need special treatment for a medical condition.
