The physicians and nurse practitioners of Maternal Fetal Medicine of Puget Sound provide consultation services as well as full spectrum care to mothers and families with high risk pregnancies. We believe it is important to ensure every patient is supported and safely cared for regardless of her medical, financial or personal challenges. Our group functions in a team approach, and we have several offices throughout the region to best serve our patients and their physicians. We work closely with pregnancy focused nutritionists, sonographers and radiologists, diabetic educators, genetic counselors, and perinatal social workers to provide the most comprehensive approach possible. Common conditions we see include, but are not limited to, entities such as: diabetes or hypertension affecting pregnancy; fetal birth defects, syndromes, or genetic abnormalities; and abnormalities of the placenta.
We offer management through pregnancy and childbirth for complicated pregnancies including prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum follow up; prenatal diagnosis with amniocentesis, CVS, detailed ultrasound and fetal echocardiography; and assistance, guidance, consultation and education to referring providers, community physicians and midwives to facilitate optimal supervision of high risk pregnancy care. We work with hospitalist obstetrics and gynecologists in the hospital to provide comprehensive inpatient care.
Our mission is to guide mothers and families through the most emotionally and physically challenging situations in a compassionate, professional and dedicated manner.
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 and women’s health nurse practitioners, our team includes a group of board-certified obstetrician/gynecologists assigned to the labor and delivery units at Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in Denver, Colorado, and Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, Colorado. 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.
