High Risk Obstetrical Unit

Patients may have one designated visitor twice weekly for a two-hour visit scheduled by the unit between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Visitors will be screened at the M-1 entrance and must wear a mask for their entire time in the hospital and stay in the patient room for the entire visit.

We provide care for women who have pregnancy complications and require inpatient care. A pregnancy may be considered high-risk if the pregnant woman:

  • Is 35-years-old or older; or 15-years-old or younger
  • Was underweight or overweight before she became pregnant
  • Is carrying more than one fetus (multiples)
  • Has gone into premature labour
  • Has had a previous premature baby
  • Has had a previous baby with a birth defect
  • Has gestational diabetes, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or another longstanding medical problem

One out of four women delivering at Sunnybrook experience a high-risk pregnancy. Caring for high-risk women has gained Sunnybrook an international reputation.

Our 21-bed unit is one of two Level III units in the Central East region of Ontario. Care is provided for women experiencing multiple pregnancies, diabetes, placenta previa, preterm rupture of membranes and other complications.
