High-Risk Pregnancy Care

Maternal Fetal Medicine

Take Comfort in Expertise

If you learned that you may have a high-risk pregnancy, Virtua is here with the experience and expertise to guide you through this potentially stressful 9-month journey. Even for the healthiest moms and dads, problems can arise during gestation and birth. But with our state-of-art technology and highly skilled staff, many pregnancy concerns can be detected early so a treatment planning can start as quickly as possible. About 75 percent of problems in pregnancy can be predicted from a patient's medical history and physical exam. That's why it's helpful for expectant parents to have experts on their team to help guide them through the possible ups and downs.

Virtua maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) doctors are obstetricians who specialize in caring for pregnant women who are high risk for reasons including health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, multiples, being over 35 at conception, and a family history of genetic disorders.

Our specialists work hand-in-hand with patients and their obstetricians to monitor health concerns and review prenatal tests and ultrasounds. These doctors also work together to care for women who need to be hospitalized during pregnancy. Virtua MFM specialists diagnose fetal abnormalities and provide information about the long-term outlook for children, while offering compassionate, family-centered support. And for newborns who need specialized care, Virtua offers a level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Virtua Voorhees Hospital and a special care nursery (SCN) at Virtua Memorial Hospital.
