Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a sub-specialty of obstetrics that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of expectant mothers and their unborn babies.

Why Patients Choose Maternal Fetal Medicine Associates for High Risk Pregnancy?
We have a large and distinguished staff of health care professional gathered together who provide the broadest range of high-risk services within one practice setting. Within Maternal Fetal Medicine Associates, patients have access to physicians, nutritionists, genetic counselors, registered nurses, and diagnostic ultrasound.
Maternal-Fetal Medicine Associates strives to effectively provide personalized care to each patient. We hold weekly multidisciplinary meetings where the entire team agrees on the management plan for individual high-risk patients in the practice. Those care plans are transcribed into each patient chart so that whoever sees the patient has access to them. This allows us to individualize care for each patient and make sure that care is consistent across the practice platform.
Our guidelines for the management and care of high-risk conditions are published and standardized for the practice. Again, this is done so that care is consistent across the practice no matter who sees the patient. Those guidelines are continually updated to assure that all providers follow the most current methodologies in the care of patients.
