At iCare ER and Urgent Care, we provide a full range of services to support patients with both emergency treatments and general medical care. Our board-certified experts have experience with a variety of emergency care, including pregnancy complications. Quality healthcare is essential throughout your pregnancy, so you shouldn’t hesitate to visit us if you have concerns about your health or the health of your child.
When unusual symptoms or complications arise in pregnancy, it is common for the mother to feel concern about the health and stability of the pregnancy. If you think that something might be wrong, then the best thing that you can do is visit a doctor as soon as possible. In an emergency, don’t wait to get on your obstetrician’s schedule; instead, come straight to the emergency room so we can provide the immediate care that is needed.
When are Emergency Services Needed for Pregnancy Complications?
Pregnancy can increase the risk of health complications for the mother-to-be. If you notice any signs outside the expected, regular symptoms of pregnancy, then you should talk to a doctor immediately. Here are pregnancy complication symptoms that might require emergency treatment:
- Rapid breathing
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of consciousness
- Fainting or passing out
- Fluid leakage or vaginal bleeding
- Cramping or abdominal pain
- Severe headache
- Extreme weakness or fatigue
- Convulsions or seizures
Certain lifestyle factors and conditions of pregnancy can increase the risk of complications: age (over 35 years old), carrying a multiple birth, tobacco or alcohol use, or other health chronic conditions such as diabetes, HIV, or high blood pressure. If you are pregnant and have any of these lifestyle factors with unusual pregnancy symptoms, then it is important to seek medical treatment immediately.
What to Expect: ER Treatment for Pregnancy Complications
From the moment you step through the door of our ER, you’ll find that our staff is committed to providing the highest levels of care to protect your health. First, we complete a no-cost, initial examination to determine if emergency services are required, or if you should be treated in the urgent care area of our office.
Next, our goal is to identify the underlying cause of the complication. Then, a treatment plan is designed to prevent difficulties or additional complications that might occur. We use the latest technology and offer a board-certified staff to ensure quality, personalized services for every patient.
