What is a MFM doctor?

A Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist, also known as “MFM,”  “perinatologist”, or “High Risk” obstetrician, is a doctor who, after 4 years of OB/GYN residency, did an additional 3 years of training to learn how to care for women with complicated pregnancies. 

During those years the MFM doctor acquires the skills to care for pregnant women with various medical conditions and to evaluate the unborn baby from the very early stages of pregnancy for various structural or genetic abnormalities.

Whether a woman or her unborn child has a medical condition or is carrying more than one baby, MFM’s have the expertise to evaluate those patients, counsel expecting parents and manage various complications should they occur.

Fortunately, under most circumstances, MFM's are able to provide reassurance. 

Depending on the findings, they are also uniquely positioned to work with your obstetricians and coordinate care with other specialists as needed to prepare for the delivery of your baby under the best and safest circumstances.

Considering the broad range of services MFM's provide, they usually work with a team of other health care professional such as nurses, genetic counselors and sonographers.
