Maternal Fetal Medicine provides prenatal care and delivery for any patient with a high-risk pregnancy. Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Women & Infants Hospital of Providence RI specializes in providing care to women who are at risk of delivering prematurely or who encounter other pregnancy-related complications that warrant close monitoring.
Complications and High-Risk Pregnancy
The Maternal-Fetal Medicine service, staffed by obstetric sub-specialists who are  trained and board certified in maternal fetal medicine, is available to provide prenatal care and delivery for any patient with a high-risk pregnancy. Complications addressed by this service generally fall into one of three categories: Maternal, Fetal or Obstetric.
 
Prenatal Diagnosis Center (PDC)
For outpatients, the Prenatal Diagnosis Center offers sophisticated diagnostic evaluation for pregnant women and their fetuses. Diagnostic services are provided to regional hospitals by the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and consultations can be arranged through a patient's private physician as needed. Genetic counseling is also available as both a pre-conception and high-risk resource.  See a WJAR-TV10 news story on the new Prenatal Diagnosis Center, now located at 101 Plain Street, Providence.
