Maternal Fetal Medicine
Often special skills and resources are required to best enhance the outcome of a pregnancy for both mother and fetus.
A Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist is an obstetrician-gynecologist who has received years of additional education, practical experience, and certification in various obstetrical, medical and surgical complications of pregnancy. By virtue of this training and technical proficiency, he or she provides care or consultation for both mother and fetus in the complicated pregnancy. In addition, he or she provides the obstetrical health care team with an awareness of the most recent approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of obstetric problems along with the diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for optimal management of these complicated pregnancies.
