Why Do You Need To Consult A Fetal Medicine Specialist During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a miracle in and of itself. However, you or your baby can need special attention at times. The joy and optimism of pregnancy are offset by caution and consideration for many mothers. Women with underlying health issues, those who have experienced unforeseen complications during pregnancy, or those who have had non-routine births need extra care from the start of their pregnancy to delivery.

They need the supervision of a Best Fetal Medicine Specialist from the start, which is always before conception. MFM experts collaborate closely with mom, her care staff, and her family to help them handle the twists and turns that a high-risk pregnancy will bring.

Can you get medical advice from a maternal-fetal medicine specialist?

The response is yes if you fit into one of the groups mentioned above. An MFM expert will provide you and your family with the peace of mind and assurance that stable moms need to raise and deliver a healthy infant. Other causes or circumstances that could necessitate seeing a fetal medicine expert include: Genetic assessment, ultrasound, and prenatal diagnosis – Scans for maternal disorders, parasites, and genetic disorders may be performed under the supervision of a fetal medicine expert.

Pregnancy challenges:The MFM consultant will resolve concerns and prescribe therapies to minimize the likelihood of the next maternity, from previous risks to existing health conditions due to pregnancy failure and preterm delivery.

Advanced maternal age:Whether you're 35 or older at the time of your baby's birth, you're more likely to have chromosome defects, and you're even more likely to have anatomic fetal anomalies. We have comprehensive genetic counseling to reduce the risk of chromosome abnormalities, and as fetal medicine specialists, we are three times more likely to find anatomic problems via ultrasound than with routine obstetric ultrasound, giving you peace of mind.

Maternal health issues:Pregnancy will worsen health issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, and other disorders. Your MFM doctor will keep a close eye on you and will prescribe drugs to help you treat your medical issues with the least amount of harm to your son.

These conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Blood pressure that is too high
  • Pre-eclampsia is a form of pre-eclampsia (toxemia)
  • Diabetes is a disease that affects people
  • Thyroid problems
  • Gastrointestinal problems
