The division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine provides screening, monitoring and treatment during pregnancy for women with special medical and obstetrical conditions.
Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists (perinatologists) are OB/GYNs who have undergone extra training in managing high-risk pregnancies. We care for women with underlying medical concerns, but also those with high risk situations in the current pregnancy, or past adverse pregnancy outcomes.
Conditions such as multiple pregnancies, diabetes, high blood pressure, and fetal birth defects can make pregnancy difficult for the mother and lead to complications in childbirth which put the mother and fetus at risk.
We work with referring physicians and specialists in other medical fields to counsel patients and optimize care for the pregnancy.
