High-Risk Obstetrics (Maternal Fetal Medicine)

Not every pregnancy goes as planned, but NuHealth’s multi-disciplinary Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) team is well prepared to give every pregnancy a fighting chance. Our board-certified MFM specialists help assess risks, diagnose complications and manage difficult pregnancies resulting from a broad spectrum of medical and surgical problems, including:

  • Repeated miscarriages
  • Premature Labor
  • Advanced Maternal Age
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Lupus
  • Bleeding and coagulation defects
  • Blood Type Incompatibility
  • Asthma/Seizure Disorders
  • Post-Transplant Pregnancies
  • Fetal Anomalies
  • Fetal Growth Restriction

NuHealth’s neonatologists, geneticists, diagnostic imaging experts and others help detect genetic and other fetal abnormalities early on, in some cases making it possible to medically or surgically intervene before birth. Their work includes:

  • 3- and 4-D Ultrasound
  • Amnioinfusion and Amnioreduction
  • Biophysical Profile (BPP)
  • First Trimester Down Screening
  • Genetic Amniocentesis
  • Genetic Counseling
  • In Utero Fetal Interventions
  • Intrauterine Fetal Transfusion
  • Non-Stress Testing (NST)
  • Nuchal Translucency
  • Target Ultrasound
  • Umbilical and Middle Cerebral Artery Doppler Studies

Working together, our specialist OBs, geneticists, neonatologists and pediatric surgeons focus their efforts to ensure the safety of our high-risk obstetric patients, while giving them the best possible prospect of a successful birth.
