Virtua maternal-fetal medicine doctors are obstetricians who specialize in caring for pregnant women who are considered high risk. Reasons for being classified as high risk may include health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, multiples (twins/triplets), being older than age 35 at conception, and a family history of genetic disorders.
Our maternal-fetal medicine 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. They diagnose fetal abnormalities and provide information about the long-term outlook for children, while offering compassionate, family-centered support.
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. Find a Virtua maternal-fetal specialist near you in our location list below.
