Women at risk for complications during pregnancy need expert care blended with compassion and understanding. Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians provide in-depth, comprehensive assistance before and throughout pregnancy, working closely with each patient’s OB/GYN and other healthcare providers.

A Maternal-Fetal Medicine consultation is often suggested for women with certain ongoing medical conditions including heart problems, diabetes, kidney disease, as well as gastrointestinal or infectious diseases. Women with recognized risk factors such as prior pregnancy with complications, multiple gestation (twins and higher multiples), or signs of fetal growth restriction would also benefit from the guidance of a Maternal-Fetal Medicine expert physician.
