Our Antepartum Unit, also referred to as Medical Obstetrics Unit, at Woman's Hospital provides care for women with high-risk pregnancies. Nurses on this unit are specially trained to care for women confined to bed with conditions including high blood pressure, preterm labor, premature rupture of membranes, as well as other problems that sometimes occur with pregnancy. Maternal and Fetal surveillance as well as non-stress testing and contraction stress testing are conducted on the unit. Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians admit as well as consult with the attending OB-GYN to monitor the care of patients on this unit.

Many patients stay in the unit for an extended time period prior to delivery. Unit staff members work to create a home-like atmosphere, and involvement of family members is encouraged. These patients have access to a resource center complete with kitchenette, washer, dryer, and education area.
