Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists for High-risk Pregnancies

Home » Medical Services » Gynecology & Obstetrics » Obstetrics » Care During Pregnancy » Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists

High-risk pregnancies are those in which mom or baby is at risk for complications. Your pregnancy may be high-risk if:

  • You are under the age of 17 or over the age of 35 at the time of delivery
  • You have a chronic condition, such as high blood pressure, diabetes or heart disease
  • You have a history of miscarriage or problems with previous pregnancies
  • You're carrying multiple babies (twins, triplets, etc.)

If your pregnancy is high-risk, your OB/GYN or midwife may refer you to a maternal-fetal medicine specialist (MFM). Your MFM doctor can:

  • Provide prenatal care
  • Help manage your existing health problems
  • Perform tests to check on baby's development
  • Identify birth defects
  • Manage labor and delivery

Your MFM doctor may manage your care directly or work in partnership with your obstetrician, midwife or family doctor.
