We also perform ultrasounds in the low risk population and offer prenatal testing. We are an additional resource for you and your doctor as you make decisions during, or prior to a pregnancy. We are accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine
Maternal-fetal medicine specialists
Our board-certified maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialists provide prenatal care for expectant mothers with complicated or high-risk pregnancies, as well as their developing babies. In addition to a four-year obstetrics and gynecology residency, they have undergone three additional years of education and training, and their core focus is to:
- Oversee existing health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
- Manage pregnancy-related maternal medical issues, such as preeclampsia.
- Conduct diagnostic tests and procedures to identify possible congenital abnormalities and genetic disorders.
- Monitor babies’ development and growth.
- Manage post-pregnancy health issues.
- Identify potential concerns and propose solutions for future pregnancies.
In addition to our MFM specialists, our team includes a group of board-certified obstetrician/gynecologists assigned to the labor and delivery units. The OB/GYNs, referred to as OB hospitalists, are skilled at inpatient pregnancy problem assessment and management. They also provide labor management and supervision. Our OB hospitalists are available 24/7, ensuring patients receive high-quality care at any time, in any situation.

OB Hospitalist Program
The OB Hospitalist Program is a collaborative effort between Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists of the Mountain States and St. Mark’s Hospital. Our hospitalists are on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide coverage as requested. Additionally, in the event of an emergency, we have the ability to assess and treat a patient requiring immediate care. Our OB Hospitalist Program is yet another initiative to enhance quality of care.
Our hospitalists practice only in the hospital setting and not privately in the community. Our OB hospitalists are supported by our maternal-fetal medicine specialists who act in a supervisory role and oversee practice management and protocols. We strive to provide pregnant women and their fetuses with high quality care through evidence-based medicine and a commitment to safety.
