At CaroMont Perinatal (formerly Gaston Perinatal Center), families are counseled about the specific problem they’re facing during the pregnancy. We develop a management plan and coordinate your care with your referring doctor to provide comprehensive care. The knowledge of a particular problem in advance may improve the outcome for both mom and baby.
