Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Comprehensive high-risk obstetrics


Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Beverly Hospital

If you have a preexisting health condition or develop a health condition during your pregnancy, you'll likely see a maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialist. Your MFM — also known as a perinatologist — will collaborate with your obstetrician or midwife to carefully manage your health and the health of your baby.

In some cases, you may only need to see an MFM once during your pregnancy. In other cases — such as in the case of a fetal growth problem — you’ll continue seeing your MFM regularly until you give birth.

Services We Offer

Working closely with your obstetrician or midwife, we provide a range of services for women with high-risk pregnancies, including:

  • Co-management for at-risk pregnancies
  • Consultations
  • Genetic counseling
  • Ultrasound imaging
