The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program (MFM) at Massachusetts General Hospital provides obstetric subspecialty care to families with complicated or high-risk pregnancies. Complications in pregnancy can arise for many reasons, including: 

  • Maternal conditions such as hypertension, diabetes or heart disease
  • Development of obstetric conditions such as preterm labor, placenta previa or preeclampsia
  • Complications for the fetus such as a birth defect

Our Maternal-Fetal Medicine providers offer comprehensive obstetric care and can also work in consultation with the patient’s primary obstetric provider to assist in management of specific issues. Our work with other specialists across Mass General to provide interdisciplinary care and expertise is central to our approach. This allows us to provide comprehensive care to women and their families before, during and after pregnancy.
