Helping You Choose the Right Treatment Options

The Center for Maternal Fetal Medicine at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies offers a wide variety of treatment options for expectant mothers who have cervical insufficiency. Also known as incompetent cervix, this condition occurs when the the cervix — the opening from the uterus to the vagina (birth canal) — gets thinner and softer, shortens and opens (dilates) during pregnancy. Due to this, cervical insufficiency can put expectant mothers at a higher risk of miscarriage (pregnancy loss) or premature birth.

Cerclage is a treatment option that can help prevent the cervix from opening too soon. Our experienced, compassionate team of maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialists knows how to care for you and your baby, and we are here to do everything we can to help you have a healthy, successful pregnancy and safe delivery.
