Our center uses leading-edge technology to diagnose and manage unique and complicated pregnancies, all in a caring environment focused on the expectant mother and her unborn baby. The Center for Maternal and Fetal Care partners with other fetal centers of excellence across the country to ensure that each individual receives the highest level of specialized care.
First visits to our center
Expectant mothers may be referred to the Center for Maternal and Fetal Care by their obstetrician-gynecologist (OB-GYN) for a variety of reasons. Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists work in conjunction with the expectant mother’s referring OB-GYN to provide advanced care. During the first visit, pregnant mothers can expect the following:
- Meet with our maternal-fetal medicine team.
- Advanced ultrasound imaging will be performed based on each mother's individual needs.
For some mothers, this may complete their maternal-fetal evaluation. Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists will communicate the results to the expectant mother’s primary OB-GYN, who will continue to follow her through the duration of her pregnancy.
Some mothers may be offered continued care through our Center for Maternal and Fetal Care.
