Maternal-Fetal Medicine (High-Risk Pregnancies)

Our maternal-fetal medicine physicians, also known as perinatologists, specialize in managing or consulting for high-risk pregnant patients. The referring obstetrician selects the level of involvement needed. This promotes a coordinated approach to problem management for high-risk pregnancies.

•Perinatal consultation only

•Comprehensive management through delivery

 

Common reasons for maternal-fetal medicine (perinatal) consultation include:
