Virtua Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists in South Jersey provide the highest level of care available to women with high-risk pregnancies.
Factors for high risk pregnancies include:
- Chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes
- Family history
- Pregnancies with multiples such as twins or triplets
- History of miscarriage or pre-term labor.
In such cases, Virtua's nationally recognized maternal-fetal medicine physicians, or perinatologists, partner with obstetricians to ensure the best possible chances for healthy, successful pregnancies. With their advanced training and technology, maternal-fetal medicine experts assess fetal health and provide families with seamless care, monitoring health, creating newborn treatment plan, expected prognosis, and social and psychological support.
Virtua's maternal-fetal medicine program was named a "Center of Excellence" by Philadelphia Magazine.
The program was awarded a two-year accredidation in the area of "obstetric ultrasound" from the Ultrasound Practice Accreditation Council. The award is presented to practices which meet rigorous voluntary guidelines set by the diagnostic ultrasound profession.
Virtua Voorhees was designated a Regional Perinatal Center by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.
