Maternal fetal medicine (MFM) provides routine ultrasound services for all maternity patients as well as specialized care for high-risk pregnancies, fully integrated with your overall obstetrical care.
MFM specialists are obstetrician gynecologists (OB/GYNs) who have additional training in ultrasound and the assessment and management of high-risk pregnancies. This additional care complements the care provided by obstetricians, family medicine physicians, and midwives, and is focused on providing comprehensive assessment and care for the high-risk mother and fetus in order to achieve the optimal outcome for both.
MFM services include:
- Routine ultrasounds for all pregnancies
- Care of pregnant women with specific medical problems, such as heart disease, hypertension, clotting disorders, thyroid disease, renal disease and substance abuse, and enhanced care programs for pregnant women with diabetes or a high risk of pre-term labor
- Care of pregnant women at risk for complications such as preeclampsia, placental abruption, incompetent cervix, multiple gestation, recurrent pregnancy loss and history of stillbirth
- Care of fetuses with complications related to amniotic fluid abnormalities, chromosomal abnormalities, congenital anomalies, fetal anemia, genetic diseases, growth abnormalities such as intra-uterine growth restriction, and medication exposure
- Coordination of care for mothers and fetuses whose conditions require that delivery happen at a facility equipped with a neo-natal intensive care unit. Our close working relationship with major medical centers such as UMASS Memorial Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and others, provides a seamless transition between our top-notch pre- and post-delivery care and labor and delivery at those facilities.
Procedures and services used for monitoring and treating both uncomplicated and high-risk pregnancies include:
- First and second trimester genetic ultrasounds and screening
- Non-invasive cell free fetal DNA testing to screen for chromosomal abnormalities
- Detailed prenatal ultrasound (2D, 3D and 4D)
- Fetal testing, including non-stress test and biophysical profile
- Genetic counseling
- Invasive fetal testing, including chorionic villus sampling (CVS), amniocentesis and percutaneous umbilical blood sampling, fetal transfusion and other in-utero procedures
- Surgery, including cerclage placement
- Consultative services for all other aspects of prenatal care
