All of our doctors are maternal-fetal medicine specialists, also known as perinatologists. A maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialist is a doctor who has completed two to three years of a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship after completing four years of Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency upon graduation from medical school.
Fellowship training provides additional education and practical experience to gain special competence in various obstetric, medical, and surgical complications of pregnancy. The MFM specialist is prepared to provide care or consultation for both mother and fetus (unborn baby) in a complicated pregnancy. In addition, the MFM specialist provides education and research concerning the most recent approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of obstetric problems.
Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists work together with your obstetrician or nurse midwife in providing consultations, co-management, or direct care for a complicated pregnancy both before (pre-conception counseling) and during pregnancy.
