High Risk Pregnancies
Academy Women’s Healthcare Associates works closely with University Perinatal Consultants in caring for patients with high risk pregnancies.
UPC is a cooperative effort between the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Section of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and St. Francis Medical Center.
It serves as the Perinatal Department for the hospital, providing specialized services to physicians and patients in our community.
UPC offices are on our floor, right down the hall.
Our doctors have a personal relationship and have consulted numerous hours with their doctor.
Because of this unique relationship, Academy Women’s Healthcare Associates is privileged to be able to provide superior care for its patients with high risk pregnancies.
Some of the more common high risk complications we care for are:
- Multiple pregnancy: Twins, Triplets, etc.
- Premature Labor and Delivery
- Incompetent Cervix
- Chronic Hypertension
- Gestational Diabetes
Ultrasound creates pictures of the internal organs of the body from sound waves. It is used to help find possible problems or to check a medical condition.
During pregnancy, ultrasounds are used to examine the fetus.
In our Colorado Springs OB GYN office, we have one of the few AIUM certified Ultrasound units in Colorado Springs.
We are proud to offer this service and the convenience of its location to our patients.
In specializing for health needs for women of all ages, Academy Women’s Healthcare is also a leader in Colorado Springs gynecology services.

When the need for surgery arises, we offer a full range of women’s surgery.
The decision to have surgery can be a stressful time in a woman’s life.
We believe that surgery can be an excellent choice in the right circumstances. You can rest assured that our providers will always review all of your surgical and nonsurgical options.
We offer all minimally invasive procedures as well as traditional surgeries on-site. The physicians at AWHA are dedicated to practicing world class medicine in Colorado Springs.
Menopause is the cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycles. Physiologically, this is when the ovaries stop making estrogen and as a result the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is no longer stimulated to cycle.
While most people think of hot flashes as the quintessential menopausal symptom, menopause affects nearly every body organ and system.
The average age of menopause is 51 years of age and had been for centuries.
A woman born in 1900 had a life expectancy of 44 years. A woman born in 2000 however has a life expectancy of 86 years.
Many of our great-grandmothers never lived to experience menopause or spent few years in that stage of life. Women will now spend nearly half of their life in that stage.
As a result, maintaining quality of life and a vigorous lifestyle are important.
As women mature and begin to experience menopause, it is paramount that they have a physician who understands the physiology and challenges of that stage of life.
While a natural process, menopause introduces a whole new set of experiences and physical challenges for a woman.
We at Academy Women’s Healthcare understand the challenges physically and emotionally that occur during this phase of a womans life.
We will help you develop a plan of care individualized to meet your needs created by your unique medical history and personal desires.
The care of infertile couples is a very stressful time in a family’s life.
At Academy Women’s Healthcare, we are sensitive to this difficult situation and will work diligently to help you start your family.
We provide basic evaluation as well as treatment of many disorders that impact fertility.
The option for contraception is a very personal decision.
Our staff at Academy Women’s Healthcare will assist you in reviewing all your options from natural family planning to permanent birth control.
We will respect your wishes and take the necessary time to review risk and benefits of all the available options you would like to review.
