Why Choose Us?
Your health as an expectant mother is our top priority. At UR Medicine Maternal-Fetal Care, our goal is to prepare and inform you through every step of your journey. Our collective experience in complex pregnancies makes us a leader in maternal and fetal health.
Coordinated Maternal-Fetal Care Team
Because women with complex pregnancy concerns require specialized care, our team provides a collaborative group practice. You will meet each member of our dedicated team during your pregnancy and before your delivery. The team meets weekly to discuss and manage your unique medical needs, and talks with other medical specialists to assure that care is coordinated across maternal and pediatric teams.
Depending on your medical needs, your Maternal-Fetal coordinated care team may include:
- Board-certified maternal-fetal medicine physicians (high-risk obstetricians)
- Board-certified genetics physician
- Breastfeeding and Lactation Specialists
- Family Therapists
- Fetal Care Coordinator
- Maternal Care Coordinator
- Palliative Care Physicians
- Pediatric Cardiologists
- Pediatric Sonographers
- Perinatal Loss Specialists
- Perinatal Surgeons
- Registered Nutritionist/Dietitians
- Reproductive and Genetic Counselors
- Social Workers
We specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of maternal medical issues and concerns with fetal health and development. This expertise enables our physicians to focus on improved outcomes for both mother and child. Our collaborative healthcare model ensures that you are being seen by the top experts and technicians in the fields of maternal-fetal medicine, genetics, ultrasound, and lactation.
Customized Treatment Plan
Since each family has unique needs, we will work with you to develop a customized management plan. This plan addresses our recommended medical course of action before, during and after your pregnancy. Our patient-centered dedication and understanding of these critical challenges allow us to deliver the care and compassion you need during a highly stressful gestational period.
Our physicians integrate services with other specialists to provide comprehensive care for expectant mothers. Related fields include cardiology, genetics, internal medicine, endocrinology, rheumatology, pulmonary medicine, and psychiatry.
By combining areas of expertise, our multidisciplinary team is able to offer a wide array of safe diagnostic and therapeutic resources.
Our specialists will work directly with your current providers to ensure you maintain the relationships you have already established. We can co-manage cases, when possible, with no need to transfer from your current provider. We will make sure you feel comfortable with the plan that is put in place for you and your growing family.
For women cared for in co-management, most will be seen in an ongoing fashion to manage a particular problem for either mom or baby, and a plan will be put in place to allow delivery with their provider at their preferred hospital. Perinatologists are not typically present at delivery, but are available for consultation as needed by phone at any time, or in-person at Strong Memorial and Highland Hospitals.
Please note that co-management visits or consultative care is outside of the typically global billing for prenatal care, and you will receive separate charges for these visits.
Level II Ultrasound Consultation & Evaluation
Our AIUM certified Level II OB/GYN ultrasound unit can help diagnose and evaluate your developing baby. Your provider may have sent you for an ultrasound and consultation for findings on a ultrasound that was done closer to home.
We invite you to learn more about our fetal care and evaluation services, and some common fetal concerns on our Fetal Care page.
Please note that when you speak with a specialist in our practice about a specific concern during an ultrasound, this type of consultative care is outside of the typically global billing for prenatal care, and you will receive separate charges for these visits.
