High-Risk Pregnancy: The Mother and/or Baby at Risk

Perinatology or maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) is a specialty branch of obstetrics and gynecology.

MFM deals with high-risk pregnancy conditions of both the mother and/or her unborn baby, or fetus, that if not dealt with could put the mother and/or fetus at risk.

Perinatologists or MFM physician specialists work collaboratively with the patients' obstetrician or primary care physician to develop a plan of care designed to address the patient's individual needs and particular medical history.

Specific Reasons to See a Perinatologist or MFM Physician Specialist

  • previous pregnancy loss;
  • advanced maternal age (greater than 35 years of age);
  • a pregnancy involving multiples (twins, triplets, etc.);
  • an underlying disease such as hypertension or diabetes;
  • a family history of genetic disorders and/or medical conditions;
  • follow-up for abnormal first and second trimester serum screenings;
  • pregnancy conditions such as fetal growth concerns, cervical length, placenta problems or pre-term labor; and/or
  • parent or family concerns, for reassurance and peace of mind.
