For mothers who might not be able to carry a baby for the full nine months, and for those who need in-hospital care for other reasons, the staff at Spartanburg Medical Center is experienced in antepartum care. (“Ante” means before; “partum” refers to birth.) The dedicated healthcare team here includes physicians who specializes in maternal-fetal medicine, or care for mother and unborn child. Also on the team are the mom’s primary care OB/GYN and a neonatologist, or specialist in caring for newborns. These experienced physicians work closely with our dedicated nursing staff to provide close observation and specialized care.

At Spartanburg Medical Center, we care for pregnant women with:

  • Pre-term labor (contractions before 37 weeks)
  • Premature rupture of membranes
  • Bleeding
  • Smaller-than-expected growth of the unborn baby
  • Twins, triplets or more babies
  • Polyhydramnious (more than expected amount of fluid around the baby)
  • Constant nausea and vomiting
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic pain
  • Kidney, heart, lung and other health conditions
  • Physical conditions, such as paralysis, that may affect the pregnancy or delivery
  • Plus those who have surgery during their pregnancy
