Maternal Fetal Medicine

For high risk pregnancies

Sometimes, you and your future baby need more than routine prenatal care.  That’s when our maternal-fetal medicine and neonatal specialists are ready to assist.

Maternal Fetal Medicine is a sub-specialty of obstetrics that focuses on expectant mothers with special medical needs.

Your pregnancy may be considered high risk if you:

  • Are over 35
  • Are expecting multiples
  • Have high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Have a history of pregnancy-related complications
  • Have a genetic history that could cause abnormalities

At the Perinatal Center at Aurora BayCare Medical Center, you and your primary obstetrician will work with our maternal-fetal specialists, whose sole focus is on caring for your health and the health of your future baby. These high risk pregnancy experts may provide care during your pregnancy, during a potentially high-risk birth, and beyond.

Our specialists have access to state-of-the-art technologies for diagnostic testing and monitoring, as well as expertise in advanced methods for high-risk pregnancy management.
