Expectant mothers, as well as women with certain medical conditions who are preparing for pregnancy, may be referred for specialized perinatal care (Maternal-Fetal Medicine). There are many, varied circumstances that benefit from a perinatal consultation ranging from underlying, pre-existing medical concerns to unexpected complications that occur during pregnancy. These include:
Maternal medical conditions:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Kidney or gastrointestinal disease
- Infectious diseases
- Recurrent pre-term labor and delivery
- Cervical incompetence
- History of miscarriages or stillbirth
- Past fetal abnormalities
- Family history of birth defects or genetic diagnoses
Pregnancy related risk factors:
- Multiple gestation (twins, triplets)
- Ultrasound abnormalities
- Signs of fetal growth restriction
- Medication use
