Maternal-Fetal Medicine services at Baylor University Medical Center, a part of Baylor Scott & White Health, provides access to testing, support and treatments—all designed to help you better manage a high-risk pregnancy and prepare for delivery. This specialized care can identify conditions before your baby is born, provide preventive care for chronic conditions that may complicate pregnancy and help you carry your baby longer or to term.
The Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians on the medical staff are highly specialized OB-GYNs who completed additional training in complex pregnancies, and they work alongside your general OB-GYN as part of your care team to care for you and your baby.
If your baby has an anomaly or condition requiring an advanced level of neonatal care, our Maternal-Fetal Medicine team works hand-in-hand with the skilled team in our Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to prepare for your baby's needs after delivery. Our NICU team is present during high-risk deliveries to care for the baby immediately and offer access to pediatric surgical specialists for prenatal consultation and surgical planning when needed.
