Giving You Peace Of Mind

The tradition of innovation continues at St. Elizabeth as we combine the expertise of our neonatal intensive care team with the maternal fetal medicine specialists of Alegent Creighton Health.

This partnership brings some of the most respected and accomplished health professionals in high-risk pregnancy and maternal fetal medicine to Lincoln - giving mother’s peace of mind for a healthy pregnancy and the best possible start for their babies.

The maternal fetal medicine specialists at St. Elizabeth are available for diagnostic testing and consultation for high-risk pregnancies. They consult with your referring OB/GYN to co-manage your care as well as other specialists including cardiologists, pulmonologists and endocrinologists. The coordination is provided during every stage of fetal development through birth and post delivery treatment.

High-risk pregnancies generally fall into one of three categories:

  • Women who have an existing health condition before becoming pregnant. They usually know from the start that they may need special attention throughout their pregnancy

  • Health conditions that develop during pregnancy, such as high blood pressure or diabetes

  • Risk factors that are pregnancy specific, perhaps due to the mother carrying multiple babies, the mother’s age or premature labor

We are committed to providing a high level of care that includes:

  • Neonatology and maternal fetal medicine specialists available 24 hours a day

  • Maternal and newborn transport teams who are ready to move ill newborns and expectant mothers 24 hours a day by ground or air
