Maternal Fetal Medicine

You’re expecting a baby — congratulations! Just as every woman is different, so is every pregnancy. Some proceed along smoothly with no surprises. Others may mean that you and your unborn baby need some extra-special attention.


The Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) care team at Stormont Vail are high-risk pregnancy experts. They provide women and their families with the medical care, support, and education they need to deliver a healthy baby.

If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant and think you may be a high-risk patient, talk to your OB/GYN about your concerns and if they would recommend you add a MFM specialist to your healthcare team.

Specific factors that may contribute to a high-risk pregnancy include:
