Specializing in the Diagnosis, Treatment and Ongoing Care of High-Risk Pregnant Mothers and Their Unborn Babies
What is Maternal-Fetal Medicine?
Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a subspecialty of obstetrics that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care of expectant mothers throughout Bergen County and their unborn babies. Some women may be at an increased risk for complications during pregnancy after age 35, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or other medical conditions. Sometimes women are considered to have a high-risk pregnancy if they are carrying more than one fetus, experience preterm labor, or have a history of pregnancy-related complications.
Maternal-Fetal Medicine at The Valley Hospital is a world-class diagnostic referral center. Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians specialize in providing care for women who are at risk for problems during their pregnancies. These specialists deliver state-of-the-art reproductive healthcare services in a caring and considerate manner.
