What is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist?

Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists, also known as perinatologists, manage high-risk pregnancies affected by complex Maternal-Fetal conditions. Maternal-Fetal Medicine is considered a subspecialty of obstetrics. MFM specialists undergo training that includes four years in obstetrics and gynecology residency after completing medical school.

Following OB/GYN residency is a three-year Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship where they engage in clinical research and receive extensive clinical training in the management of obstetrical and medical complications during pregnancy, fetal ultrasound and prenatal diagnosis.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A pregnancy is considered high-risk when there is an increased chance of complications for a pregnant mother, baby or both. Potential pregnancy complications can develop due to a pre-existing condition or Maternal-Fetal complications caused by pregnancy.

You may be referred to an MFM specialist if your pregnancy is impacted by the following:

• A pre-existing maternal health condition and you are pregnant or would like to become pregnant
• You have experienced a complication in a previous pregnancy
• You develop a complication that impacts your maternal health during or shortly after pregnancy
• Your baby or babies develop a complication or are diagnosed with a congenital anomaly during pregnancy
• You have experienced a complication in a previous pregnancy
• You are pregnant with multiples: twins, triplets, or more
• Advanced Maternal Age (AMA)
