The goal of the Preterm Birth Prevention Clinic is to provide supportive, reliable and cutting-edge medical care and education to women who are at the highest risk for spontaneous preterm birth.

Tracy Manuck 2017Welcome to the UNC Preterm Birth Prevention Clinic! Our goal is to provide the latest evidence-based approaches to the care of women who find themselves at high risk for preterm birth. Whether you are a patient seeking care or a medical provider in need of guidance, we are here for you.

If you are a woman at high risk for delivering preterm, we understand that this can be a very emotional time. Thank you for trusting us. We hope you find this information helpful.

If you are a referring provider – we look forward to working with you. We are available to provide one-time consultations, recurring consultation (co-management), or full transfer-of-care based on your needs. You can find more information at this site.

The entire Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine at UNC’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to providing the highest quality prenatal care. We work together with the Newborn Critical Care Center (NCCC) at UNC, and we are able to provide Level 4 services to moms and to babies. This means that we can take care of the sickest moms and the youngest babies!
