Welcome to Fort Sanders Perinatal Center

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life. But if you’re facing a high-risk pregnancy with a potential for premature labor and delivery, gestational diabetes or other complications, or if you’re finally pregnant after struggling with infertility, you need specialized care for you and your baby. The high-risk prenatal doctors, or perinatologists, at Fort Sanders Perinatal Center have served women in East Tennessee for more than 20 years, providing complete care for high-risk women, especially those 35 years or older, with multiples, pregnancy complications, history of birth defects, and medical problems such as diabetes or hypertension. For excellence in high-risk pregnancy care, women choose Fort Sanders Perinatal Center.

Breech presentation at term complicates up to 5% of pregnancies and not all breech babies need to be delivered by cesarean section. C-sections are not without their own unique risks and also have markedly longer healing times. In certain scenarios a breech delivery can be less risky than a C-section.

We take great pride in the care we provide and really try to listen to and accomodate our patients' desires to the best of our abilities, all the while guiding your care in an evidence-based, safe way.

If your baby is in a breech presentation or you have a patient whose baby is currently breech and would like to discuss options further, please give our office a call to set up a consult with Dr. Andrade, one of our Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists.
