Care for Complex Pregnancies
At UTMB Health, our maternal-fetal medicine doctors are considered to be among the top leading specialists in their field who care for women with pregnancy complications, including pre-term and multiple births. We offer the most advanced treatments and interventions available to keep both mom and baby healthy.
Immediately after your baby is born, a UTMB Health pediatrician will perform a brief physical exam to make sure your bundle of joy is healthy. Another health assessment called an Apgar test is then performed by the doctor and nurses to evaluate the following:
- Activity; muscle tone
- Pulse rate
- Grimace; reflex irritability
- Appearance; skin color
If your little one needs advanced care, UTMB Health has some of the most experienced neonatologists and pediatric specialists in the region. Since UTMB is an integrated health care network, this means your baby’s doctors and providers work closely together to ensure your baby receives the right care.
