Maternal Fetal Care Services

Our doctors provide personalized care for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies.

NYU Langone’s maternal-fetal medicine specialists provide women experiencing high-risk pregnancies with the expert maternal-fetal care services they need and the peace of mind they deserve.

The best ways to ensure a healthy pregnancy are through proper screening for possible issues during pregnancy, monitoring of your baby’s growth and development, and treatment for any issues that may arise. Our efforts have been recognized by The Joint Commission, which named NYU Langone as the first medical center nationwide to be accredited for the very best practices for perinatal patient care and safety.

Additionally, NYU Langone has been designated a Regional Perinatal Center by New York state. This achievement recognizes that we meet the highest standards for obstetric and infant care as defined by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Our Pregnancy Care Expertise

We specialize in high risk conditions, such as preterm labor, recurrent miscarriage, pregnancy with multiple babies, pregnancy when the woman is older than age 35, preeclampsia, autoimmune diseases in pregnancy, gestational diabetes, congenital heart disease in women, and fetal abnormalities, such as spina bifida and heart defects.

Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists are board certified, nationally recognized experts who have won numerous awards for medical education and regularly publish original research in top medical journals. They work closely with neonatologists, geneticists, pediatric cardiologists, rheumatologists, fertility experts, and other specialists to manage your high-risk pregnancy.

Our doctors have been included in New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors in New York.”

Care Before and During Pregnancy

We provide preconception consultations to women who have a history of difficult pregnancies. For women who are pregnant and identified as being at high risk, we provide genetic and diagnostic testing for birth defects and fetal abnormalities, including chorionic villus sampling, nuchal translucency, and umbilical cord blood sampling.

We use the latest in fetal monitoring technology to track your baby’s development. This includes fetal echocardiography and three- and four-dimensional ultrasound testing. We are also experts in performing fetal therapeutic procedures, including blood transfusions for babies in the womb affected by anemia.

Leaders in Obstetric Education

Our specialists are leaders in preparing the next generation of doctors entering the field of maternal-fetal medicine. We train residents and fellows in the use of the latest techniques when diagnosing and treating women who require complex obstetrical care.
