Maternal and Fetal Medicine

Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists are qualified by training and experience to manage complicated pregnancies. Their services are complementary to obstetricians in providing consultations, co-management, or direct care for a complicated pregnancy or for pre-conception counseling.

Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists also function in collaboration with family physicians and certified nurse-midwives. Most women seek consultation from or care by a MFM specialist because they are "at risk" and considering becoming pregnant, or otherwise worried about their pregnancy.

The division of Maternal and Fetal Medicine has outpatient services at the Regional Perinatal Center, at University Health Care Center. Please visit the Perinatal Center for more information and useful links.
