Dr. Carolyn Kline is a fellowship trained maternal-fetal medicine expert. Her areas of special interest include Prenatal ultrasound and fetal diagnosis, diabetes, multiples, public health and epidemiology, clinical research and quality improvement. Having trained at Stanford Medical School and Harvard for Residency, Dr. Kline started practice with a wealth of experience which her maternal fetal medicine practice on the eastside has continued to expand. One of Dr. Kline's areas of expertise is in prenatal diagnosis so among others she sees women who have an increased risks of fetal complications or birth defects because of a family history. She often serves as a consultant for patients who have - or develop- medical issues which can complicate pregnancies. Dr. Kline does full OB care for particularly high risk patients. She jokes with her patients that she "quit counting how many deliveries I've done when I surpassed 1000." Dr. Kline is passionate about helping women develop healthy lifestyles for themselves and their families.
I am passionate about helping patients and their families achieve their goals. I won't tell patients what to do - on the contrary I see my job as educating patients about their choices while helping them decide what's best for them. I take pride in providing both "High Touch and High Tech" exceptional medical care. To me, this means getting to know my patients, listening to and addressing their concerns while providing state of the art medical care.
I feel incredibly lucky to be a doctor and in particular a maternal fetal medicine specialist. I chose medicine for the old fashioned reasons: my fascination with science and the desire to help others. I fell in love with high risk obstetrics my first clinical year in medical school and I still love it. I came to Seattle for fellowship training at University of Washington and fell in love with both the NW and my now husband! We have two teenagers (a boy and a girl) with whom we enjoy camping, rafting and hanging out. Gardening is one of my favorite off duty pastimes.
In the Community
I have done a variety of volunteer positions many of them to help advance the obstetrical care and encourage collaboration among all different types of obstetrical providers. For example, I have been on the board of the Washington State Obstetrical Association for many years and have recently served as president. Like many working parents, I also have done intermittent volunteering at my children's schools.
