We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
You are at a higher risk of developing complications before, during and after pregnancy if you have diabetes, a heart condition, hypertension or another health problem.
Desert Care Network’s Maternal Fetal Medicine Center is staffed by perinatologists who work together with your personal obstetrician/gynecologist to ensure a high level of care for you and your baby.

Among conditions that can put you and your baby at high risk during pregnancy are:
Gestational, or pregnancy-related, diabetes
Gestational hypertension (high blood pressure) that can lead to pre-eclampsia
