High-Risk Patients and Babies
Our Memorial Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists (perinatologists) are experts in the field of pregnancy complications for mother and baby. If you require MFM care, rest assured that you’re in skilled hands. We provide our patients with a unique blend of family-centered culture and cutting-edge medical care to meet both mom and baby’s needs.
If your OB/GYN refers you to our MFM team, we are committed to working side-by-side with your physician to manage your care. In certain situations, your OB/GYNs could recommend that our MFM team assume prenatal care to monitor your baby’s health. If that’s the case, we will take great care of you and your little one.

In addition to high-risk complications, we also provide experienced care managing more common conditions such as:

In addition, our labor nurses receive ongoing education using Evidence Based Practice for ACLS, NRP and fetal monitoring.
