What is maternal-fetal medicine?

Maternal-fetal medicine is a subspecialty of obstetrics, focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, and continued care of women with complex or high-risk pregnancies. The maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) subspecialists at California maternal-fetal medicine are fully equipped to address the needs of you and your baby. 

This highly specialized type of care promotes a partnership between the pregnant patient, her family, and her medical team, providing guidance, testing, and helping to navigate the pregnancy to achieve the best outcome possible. 

What services does maternal-fetal medicine offer?

Before you become pregnant, MFM subspecialists provide advice if you have a chronic health condition or have experienced a previous high-risk pregnancy. They can help map out a strategy for your next pregnancy.

When you become pregnant, maternal-fetal medicine works to give you superior care for you and your baby. At California Maternal Fetal Medicine, the team offers:

  • Genetic testing
  • Genetic counseling
  • Obstetric ultrasound (3D and 4D)
  • Pregnancy consultations

Fetal genetic testing includes chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniocentesis, which allow your provider to see inside your womb and evaluate the growing fetus.

You can also rely on MFMs throughout your labor and delivery to give you exceptional attention and care. They can help determine if or when to induce labor and monitor the fetal heart rate. In addition, they have the training, skills, and expertise to handle complicated births, including vacuum- or forceps-assisted deliveries, Cesarean section, or trial of labor after a Cesarean section.

Who can benefit from maternal-fetal medicine?

Maternal-fetal medicine offers obstetrical care for any type of pregnancy complication and can benefit you if you have:

  • Chronic medical conditions (i.e., diabetes, hypertension)
  • Abnormal screening results
  • Fetal congenital anomalies
  • Multiple birth pregnancy
  • Placenta previa
  • Previous pregnancy complications

If you have concerns about becoming pregnant or believe you might have a high-risk pregnancy, the expert California Maternal Fetal Medicine team can help. They offer the highest level of care when you need it most.
