Pregnancy pathology

Pregnancy is a unique time in a woman’s life. During pregnancy your body will go through a tremendous set of changes to help your baby grow inside you. Sometimes complications occur which can affect mother and baby’s health. If you notice any alarming symptoms or if you need an emergency consultation, come to the Medicover Hospital. You will get professional medical assistance and, if necessary, you will be admitted to the Foetal Medicine Unit.
Expectant mothers with pregnancy complications can be sure to receive in our hospital the best care based on our extensive knowledge and many years of experience in providing obstetrical care. We do our best to help each woman experience a happy and calm childbirth. In the case of preterm delivery, our Neonatology and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will immediately provide care to the baby as the first moments of life are often crucial to child’s further development and often life.

The Foetal Medicine Unit provides treatment and care for high-risk pregnancies, including:

  • preterm delivery
  • cervical incompetence - cervical cerclage, pessary
  • imminent abortion
  • hyperemesis gravidarum
  • multiple pregnancy
  • mother’s diseases affecting the pregnancy e.g. heart diseases, metabolic disorders, hypertension
  • fetal developmental disorders

We have the state-of-the-art equipment, such as  magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and a modernly equipped ultrasound laboratory which allow the diagnosis of fetal diseases and abnormalities.
The modern VOLUSON EXPERT ultrasound machine allows us to carry out a professional real time 3D or 4D fetal echocardiography. This scan not only enables us to watch the fetal movements or the work of the heart but it also provides the anatomic cross-section, unavailable in a traditional examination, and highlights some fetal features which can help diagnose various medical conditions such as genetic diseases.
