Perinatology (High-Risk Pregnancy Care)
If your pregnancy should fall into one of the high-risk categories, your OB or midwife may refer you to a perinatologist for help managing your pregnancy.
The perinatologists at Maternal-Fetal Medicine Services are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy complications, and they'll be by your side to help you manage your pregnancy complications.
In particularly complicated pregnancies, or when very close pregnancy supervision is required, the perinatologist can provide complete obstetrical care.
