What is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist?
A Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist is an Obstetrician who specializes in High-Risk Pregnancies, Prenatal Diagnosis and Medical Complications of Pregnancy. Our doctors have completed a four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and have done additional fellowship training in Ultrasound and High-Risk Pregnancies. While some obstetricians have the experience and training to handle complicated pregnancies, our Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists can provide consultation and co-management of high-risk patients. At Bridgeport Hospital, a close relationship has developed between the doctors in the community and our specialists to provide the best possible care in complicated pregnancies.
