About the Center for Maternal and Fetal Care

UMMC's Center for Maternal and Fetal Care offers the support of a variety of specialists who form a customized care team based on each expectant mother's unique needs, ensuring compassionate, individualized care for pregnancies and births that might need extra attention.

The center has the largest group of maternal-fetal subspecialists in the state as well as a comprehensive team of pediatric subspecialists and support services. The center's care teams use leading-edge technology to diagnose and manage special and complicated pregnancies, all in a caring environment focused on the mother and her unborn baby.

First visits to our center

Expectant mothers may be referred to the Center for Maternal and Fetal Care for a variety of reasons. During the first visits, pregnant mothers will meet with one of our maternal-fetal medicine specialists and have access to fetal imaging studies based on their unique neds  - in one day and under one roof.

Expert subspecialty care

If our team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists determines that a pregnancy requires specialized care and attention, we offer consultation for pregnancy disorders, management of patients with medical or surgical disorders, and genetic counseling, including comprehensive prenatal counseling and screening. 

Because we're part of Children's of Mississippi, we are able to provide seamless continuity of care through the delivery and in the newborn period. Children's of Mississippi includes Batson Children's Hospital, the state's only hospital devoted to caring for children of all ages.
