About El Paso Maternal Fetal Medicine - West - Suite 790
We provide prenatal care with compassion and professionalism.
At El Paso Perinatology, we treat expectant mothers. Having a baby is a joyous and exciting event, but for a number of reasons, some women need more medical attention during pregnancy. In this case, the woman’s obstetrician may suggest she consult with a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist.
Maternal-fetal medicine physicians, also called perinatologists, are obstetricians who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care of expectant mothers and their unborn babies, who may be at high risk for special health problems.
Being referred to a perinatologist does not necessarily mean the pregnancy will be a difficult one. Nor does it mean the baby will have health problems. It is simply a precautionary measure designed to protect both mother and baby, while putting the expectant parents’ minds at ease.
Our experienced Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists provide ultrasound examinations, genetic counseling, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid/heart/kidney disease, autoimmune disorders, advanced maternal age, preterm labor and fetal birth defects. As the due date approaches, the perinatologist physician remains in close contact with the obstetrician who will deliver the baby. Smooth teamwork and good communication between the perinatology specialist and obstetrician ensure both mother and baby receive the best possible care.
Our commitment is to provide thorough, professional and compassionate prenatal care and consultations. Our primary goal is for the best possible outcome for both the mother and baby. Visit us for a consultation only or complete prenatal care.
