Maternal-Fetal Medicine Telehealth

We want to make it easier for Kentucky women with high-risk pregnancies to get advanced, comprehensive care – no matter where they live. 

Through UK HealthCare Maternal-Fetal Medicine Telehealth virtual appointments, you can stay in your home community and still receive exceptional care from our high-risk obstetricians. Also known as maternal-fetal medicine doctors, these providers are skilled in diagnosing and treating patients with complicated pregnancies.

  • How high-risk pregnancy telehealth appointments work

    Telehealth appointments – also called telemedicine – are virtual appointments where you and your high-risk obstetrician talk via videoconference. 

    This is how an appointment works:

    • UK ultrasound technicians travel to locations throughout the Commonwealth to perform fetal ultrasounds, a key component of care for high-risk pregnancies. 
    • The ultrasound technician uses a portable videoconference device. 
    • The maternal-fetal medicine doctor at UK HealthCare in Lexington talks with you and your ultrasound technician and reviews the ultrasound remotely during the appointment.

    Because many high-risk patients need close attention, appointments are offered at least two times a month at each location.

    Benefits of maternal-fetal medicine telehealth appointments

    • Maternal-fetal medicine telehealth appointments save you time and money by eliminating the need to drive to Lexington for high-risk ultrasound appointments. 
    • These appointments give you convenient access to our high-risk obstetricians.
    • You keep your current community obstetrician for your regular care. 
    • If needed, you can deliver at our advanced neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Lexington. 
    • Types of high-risk pregnancies

    Women with certain conditions are identified as high risk by their community obstetricians and referred to UK HealthCare for these appointments. Conditions that are considered high risk include:

    • Gestational diabetes 
    • High blood pressure 
    • Fetal abnormality
    • Multiples (twins, triplets or more)
    • Advanced maternal age
    • Drug dependence
