Our Services

Perinatal

A Perinatologist, also known as a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist, is a Doctor who specializes in the care of high risk pregnancies.

Fetal Diagnosis and Screening

Fetal screening can determine if a pregnancy is at an increased risk. For couples found to be at an increased risk, fetal diagnostic procedures can help to better define the disorder.

High Resolution, Targeted Ultrasonography

Your doctor may send you to see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist for “a level II,” a “detailed,” or a “targeted” ultrasound even if they have already looked at your baby with ultrasound in their office. 

Genetic Counseling

Counseling by an experienced Board Certified Genetic Counselor is an important part of the fetal diagnosis process.

1st Trimester risk assessment for Down Syndrome, Trisomy 13 and Trisomy 18

1st Trimester risk assessment testing is a combination of an ultrasound exam and a blood test to measure two chemicals normally present in the blood of all pregnant women.

Diabetic Management

Diabetes and Pregnancy - Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease state that is complicated by the hormonal changes of pregnancy.  Women with Type 1 DM, Type 2 DM, or Pre-diabetes should be seen by a specialist as soon as a pregnancy is confirmed. 

High-Risk Pregnancies

​The term "high-risk pregnancy" is used to describe a pregnant woman who has one or more factors that may put her or her fetus at risk. It is important to recognize that the term "high-risk" is not meant to cause a woman and her partner to worry; rather it is a way to identify her situation so the gynecologist ensures she gets more specialized attention during her pregnancy.

Amniocentesis

Amniocentesis is a procedure used to sample the amniotic fluid around the baby while in the uterus. This procedure is typically done during or after the fifteenth week of pregnancy.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

A diagnostic ultrasound is a test that uses ultrasound (high frequency sound waves) to produce images of a fetus or an embryo.
