Maternal fetal medicine specialist + life force

Bookmark and Share

Guilt, fear and grief are no match for the iron will of Dr. Ronald Librizzi, Virtua’s chief of maternal-fetal medicine and a renowned high-risk pregnancy physician. He is a tower of strength and hope for couples who face the tsunami of emotions following the loss of a child during pregnancy. Dr. Librizzi gently guides a couple through the storm – to once again move toward their goal – a healthy child.

Christine Messina Coley and her husband Travis can attest to Dr. Librizzi’s courageous clinical conviction. They tragically lost a child in utero and an infant at just five days old. Dr. Librizzi worked and worried for them until everything was done to help them bring home a healthy baby. About a year later, happiness was reborn into their lives with a new son, Augie.

Another Dr. Librizzi patient, Lisa Hurly and her husband Steve, also suffered the unthinkable – losing a son at five weeks old. When she became pregnant again Lisa says: “I developed a condition that could steal my child’s life and mine.” Dr. Librizzi delivered mother and child to safety – using the exemplary skills of his staff and colleagues. And, by never taking his own eyes off the case for a nanosecond.

Christine sums up her experience with Dr. Librizzi: “There were two umbilical cords in my pregnancy – one from me to my baby, and the other from Dr. Librizzi to me.”

Force of nature is what comes to mind when thinking about this physician.
