A Maternal-Fetal Medicine sub-specialist is a board certified OB/Gyn who has completed 4 years of medical school, 4 years of Ob/Gyn training (residency), and an additional 3 years of education and clinical experience (fellowship) to develop specialized skills to help both the mom and baby before and during a high risk pregnancy. Our training includes both medical treatment and complex procedures for moms and babies. We are board certified high-risk pregnancy experts.
Our extra training enables us to conduct and interpret research on new approaches for complications that may arise during pregnancy. Through educational courses, development of clinical protocols, and research, we share our knowledge of optimal care for a vast array of maternal and fetal complications during pregnancy.
Maternal-fetal medicine physicians partner with multiple providers to consult, co-manage or care directly for complicated situations, both before, during and after pregnancy. We know it takes a team --starting with the mother and her family--to achieve the best possible outcomes for both mom and baby.
