Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine
The Maternal-Fetal Medicine program at the University of Utah is a division located inside the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department with more than 20 physicians and three certified nurse-midwives. Our maternal-fetal medicine program offers care by evaluating, diagnosing, and monitoring high risk pregnancy conditions such as high blood pressure, fetal abnormalities, diabetes, and early onset of delivery.
Maternal-fetal specialists are obstetricians and gynecologists who have completed two to three years of additional training, formal education, and clinical experience. Our specialists have expertise in genetic and surgical factors that can complicate pregnancy.
The University of Utah’s maternal-fetal medicine obstetricians specialize in making a high-risk situation less stressful to you, your baby, and your family. Our specialists work hand-in-hand with you and – if applicable – your obstetrician, to develop a plan of care tailored to you. We treat and manage risk during your pregnancy, labor and delivery, and during the postpartum period.
