OB Diagnostics

The Area’s Only OB Diagnostic Center

How does an OB Diagnostic Center affect you and your baby? If your doctor has told you that your pregnancy is “high risk” this means that you or your baby have a greater chance of having a health problem and that you need to be watched very closely during your pregnancy. Your private physician will then refer you to a doctor who specializes in high-risk pregnancies called a maternal-fetal specialist or perinatologist.

Our Perinatologist works in conjunction with your obstetrician and specializes in reading ultrasounds and providing diagnosis and treatment for disorders that could occur with you or your baby during pregnancy. This also means that at Halifax Health you are in a healthcare system where all of your care is provided under one roof. We provide continuity of care by having the area’s only OB Emergency Department. If anything were to be detected during your OB Diagnostics appointment, you would be seen immediately by one of our OB Hospitalists in the OB Emergency Department located in Labor & Delivery. Seconds matter and at Halifax Health we have all specialists on site and ready to care for you and your baby.

Appointments are made by physician referrals. You will be contacted after your physician sends us the request. We also accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid. For more information on the Prenatal Diagnostic Center, please call 386.425.4830.
