Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists are Obstetrician-Gynecologists who undergo an additional three years of specialized training in the assessment and management of high-risk pregnancies. Physicians who practice Maternal-Fetal Medicine are also known as Perinatologists. We focus on the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies, including comprehensive ultrasound, birth defects, genetic testing, and fetal surgery. We also care for women with routine pregnancies by performing specialized ultrasounds. At Georgia Perinatal, we recommend that all pregnant women have a first trimester sonographic evaluation, as well as an 18-20 week comprehensive ultrasound performed by a Perinatologist to rule out pregnancy complications.
How will your Obstetrician and Perinatologist Work Together?
Your Obstetrician and Perinatologist work together through all stages of your pregnancy to ensure the best outcome for you and your unborn child. During the course of your pregnancy, Perinatologists may perform consultations and various diagnostic procedures. The information they collect and interpret is then communicated to your Obstetrician and medical team. The Obstetrician/Perinatologist relationship has been directly linked to improved maternal and fetal outcomes.
