We send people to our maternal fetal medicine department at LDS Hospital when there is a health concern. Obstetricians and infertility specialists coordinate with MFM to ensure women and their unborn babies are given the best care possible. Certain high-risk pregnancies need to be cared for entirely by the Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist. Our maternal fetal medicine program cares for women with a variety of high risk pregnancy complications.
