Our antepartum unit is for expectant mothers requiring close observation or specialized care prior to delivery.
The 12-bed unit is located on the north wing of the sixth floor of Spartanburg Regional’s main building. The unit offers family-centered, comprehensive care to both the mother and the fetus.
Personalized care is designed to preserve each pregnancy until a safer point for the baby's arrival has been reached.
We care for pregnant women with:
- Pre-term labor (contractions before 37 weeks)
- Premature rupture of membranes
- High blood pressure
- Smaller-than-expected fetal growth
- Pregnancy with more than one baby
- Polyhydramnious (more than expected amount of fluid around the baby)
- Ongoing hyperemesis (constant nausea and vomiting)
- Chronic pain
- Kidney, heart or lung conditions
- Physical conditions that may affect the pregnancy (e.g. paralysis)
- Post-surgery care
- Hematological conditions (e.g. lymphoma)
This unique unit specializes in care for high-risk pregnancies. Our maternal-fetal medicine specialist physicians work closely with the patient's primary care OB/GYN physician and neonatologists to ensure that mother and baby receive the best care possible.
