Maternal-fetal medicine is a type of specialty care for women with high-risk pregnancies. Your doctor may recommend a maternal-fetal medicine specialist (often called an MFM doctor) to provide you with personalized care until you give birth. An MFM doctor is an OB/GYN doctor with advanced training in caring for women and their unborn babies during a high-risk pregnancy.
At Dignity Health, providing maternal-fetal medicine is a team effort. It involves your doctor and specialists who work together to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery.
