Maternal/fetal medicine is a branch of obstetrics that focuses on medical
and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies. Maternal/fetal medicine
specialists--also known as perinatologists--are highly skilled physicians
who have special training to treat pregnant women with a variety of specific
medical conditions, such as those with:
- heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, etc.
- risk for pregnancy-related complications such as preterm labor, pre-eclampsia
or multiple births
- a fetus at risk for infections, genetic diseases, growth restriction and more
