Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) is a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology that focuses on the management of high-risk pregnancies.  An MFM specialist has received three years of additional education and training to gain special competence in obstetrical, medical, and surgical complications of mothers and unborn babies.  This training and technical proficiency enables the specialist to provide the extra care or consultation required for both mother and fetus in complicated obstetric situations.  Our doctors are committed to using uptodate evidence based approaches to ensure the health of new mothers and their babies.

MFM Services include but not limited to:

  • Maternal conditions which pose a risk during pregnancy, including diabetes, hypertension, asthma, sickle cell disease, HIV, systemic lupus, and kidney disease.
  • Obstetric conditions such as multiple gestation (twins or greater), incompetent cervix, preterm labor, Rh sensitization, and recurrent pregnancy loss
  • Obstetrical Ultrasounds performed by MFM specialists for certain diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.  These may include comprehensive detailed fetal ultrasound examinations, cervical cerclage, amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, umbilical blood sampling, and intrauterine fetal transfusion.
