The Perinatal Special Care Unit (PSCU) at the Cherese Mari Laulhere BirthCare Center cares for more than 3,000 women with high-risk pregnancies each year.
Equipped with the latest monitoring technology, but designed to provide a peaceful environment. Private rooms give families their own space, since many women faced with a high-risk pregnancy may stay for several days or weeks, sometimes even months before birth.
The PSCU has a central monitoring system that allows for continual observation of any patient’s fetal heart tracing, from anywhere in the unit by nurses and physicians.
The PSCU care team monitors the health of mom and baby, reviews any advanced tests or ultrasounds that may be needed and offers counseling. Treatment for problems in pregnancy ranges from weekly or monthly ultrasound monitoring to complex IV infusions and medication management.
