Our comprehensive maternity services include:
Preconception care and prenatal health
The building blocks for a healthy pregnancy are laid months before conception. If you are thinking about having a baby, you should schedule a preconception appointment with your ob-gyn to discuss any health conditions and risk factors that could affect you or your growing baby.
High-risk pregnancy and genetic counseling services
At Presbyterian Medical Center, we offer high-risk pregnancy care and genetic counseling based on referral by your Novant Health obstetrician. Due to age and other health and genetic related factors, some pregnancies are classified as “high-risk”
, which means special precautions and lifestyle adjustments may be needed.
Take the first step towards a healthy and fulfilling pregnancy by taking advantage of our maternity classes. To sign up for any of the classes, call 704-384-4949 or view our online calendar. If you are on bed rest or just can't make it to an in-person class, we also offer an online version of our childbirth class.

We recommend you pre-register for your hospital stay by completing a maternity pre-admission form. This information will be used to admit you when you are ready to deliver your baby and will reduce the amount of paperwork you will need to fill out upon arrival.
