Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) is a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology that deals with all matters that can affect the health of a mother or fetus from before conception to the postpartum period. Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians are also called Perinatologists. We specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care of expectant mothers and their unborn babies. Our staff works with your physician to develop a plan of care that is designed to address your individual needs and particular medical history.
We offer pre-conception counseling and counseling during pregnancy for specific maternal-fetal medicine concerns. Some of the indications that your physician may refer you to us for include maternal diseases such as diabetes or hypertension, a history of a pregnancy loss or pre-term delivery, advanced maternal age, a multiple pregnancy, known or suspected birth defects, follow-up of screening test results or fetal growth issues.
Bayhealth Maternal-Fetal Medicine Associates offer a wide range of comprehensive services for pregnant women with high-risk and low-risk pregnancies. These include diagnostic testing, genetic counseling, targeted ultrasounds, first trimester screening, basic ultrasounds, antenatal testing, and high-risk pregnancy consultations.
