The High Risk Pregnancy Unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center treats women at all stages of what is defined as “high risk pregnancy” – due to the state of the mother, the fetus or both. For example, women with high pregnancy blood pressure, those at risk of giving birth prematurely and women coping with an eruption of or an imbalance in a background condition such as heart disease, kidneys, inflammatory bowel disease or respiratory disease.

The unit works in close cooperation with the Obstetrics Department, the Obstetrics Ultrasound Unit, the Medical Genetics Institute and the Obstetric Anesthesiology Unit. Our patients benefit from the advice and support of senior doctors – day and night – in all departments related to the woman’s situation. Referral to the clinic is through your Kupat Holim, or via the Obstetrics ER or Outpatients Clinics.
