Making Appointments and Scheduling TestsWe will help you arrange all of your Packard Children’s Hospital tests and appointments. Our team will make every effort to:
- Make the schedule as convenient as possible for you and your family
- Minimize the number of times you have to come to the hospital
First AppointmentYour first Program for Placental Disorders appointment will include an ultrasound. We will then speak with your obstetrician to discuss next steps and if/how our program can help with your pregnancy care.
We Work Together with Your ObstetricianThe Program for Placental Disorders team can work with your obstetrician, at his or her request, to co-manage your pregnancy care. Throughout your pregnancy, we will communicate with your obstetrician about your appointments and the care you and your baby receive at Packard Children’s Hospital.
During Your PregnancyStandard care for our patients often includes:
- Pelvic rest
- Administration of steroids. Steroids help to accelerate your baby’s lung development since women with placental disorders often require early delivery.
