About the Center for Maternal and Fetal Care

Comprehensive care for complicated pregnancies

High-risk pregnancy and birth demand a high level of teamwork. These special pregnancies require collaboration between referring providers, specialists, subspecialists, and an exceptional support staff, working together throughout the pregnancy and after the baby is born. The Center for Maternal and Fetal Care at UMMC is the place for this highly advanced care.

Our clinicians include maternal-fetal medicine subspecialists, pediatric subspecialists, neonatologists, and genetic counselors. We have built a multidisciplinary team with a single shared goal to provide compassionate individualized care to both mother and baby before, during, and after pregnancy. From consultations and collaborative care to complete treatment and management for high-risk pregnancies, we partner with referring providers to coordinate an appropriate, effective of care for each patient.

Women's health focuses on caring for women throughout their lives, from routine medical care to pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. Women’s health includes preventive screenings, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect women, and maternal-fetal medicine for expectant mothers and their unborn babies.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment before birth

The UMMC Center for Maternal and Fetal Care has the largest group of maternal-fetal subspecialists in the state, as well as a comprehensive team of pediatric subspecialists and support services. We 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.
We offer consultation for pregnancy disorders, management of patients with medical or surgical disorders, and genetic counseling, including comprehensive prenatal counseling and screening. We are supportive of and equipped to undertake a trial of labor after cesarean section (TOLAC) to accomplish successful vaginal delivery (VBAC).
