Sometimes, challenges arise during pregnancy that can affect a mother’s health and that of her unborn baby. MultiCare’s High-Risk OB CareConnect™ program was created to give women with high-risk pregnancies the extra special prenatal care and attention they need.

If you are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, you MultiCare obstetrician will recommend the High-Risk OB CareConnect program that is best for you.

The diabetes care program and high-risk pregnancies

  • A diabetes care coordinator who will be your contact to guide you through all aspects of your diabetes care journey.
  • A Personalized Diabetes Guidebook (both in digital and printed formats), with various resources, tips and tools created especially for you.

  • The care roadmap personalized for you and your baby, allowing you to know in advance what to expect to make the process easier for your high-risk birth.
  • Modern tools added for your convenience, including a personalized webpage, an online appointment calendar and a new upload-able glucose monitoring tool.
