A Maternal-Fetal Medicine consultation assists obstetrical care providers and midwives in managing high-risk, complicated pregnancies. Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists at MedStar Montgomery work closely with referring care providers in a multidisciplinary approach to provide personalized management of each patient's care.
Throughout testing and counseling, close communication is maintained with the referring physician or the certified nurse midwife. We make it a priority to discuss all test results and clinical recommendations in a timely manner.
These noninvasive tests on a fetus are used to determine well-being:
- Comprehensive fetal ultrasound
- First trimester screening
- Biophysical profile
- Fetal echocardiography
- Doppler velocimetry
- Non-stress testing
Genetic Testing and Counseling
Genetic counseling services help identify the risk of having a baby with specific birth defects, developmental disabilities or an inherited disease. Although not every couple needs testing, we recommend it for all women older than age 35 and those who have had a previous miscarriage or who have a family history of genetic disorders or birth defects.
