Maternal Fetal Medicine
The Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine provides expertise in high-risk, complicated pregnancies. We treat any medical condition or pre-existing illness that could affect a pregnancy, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart conditions, a history of pre-term labor and delivery, the loss of a pregnancy, multiple babies and genetic diseases. Our focus is helping our patients successfully manage conditions that have the potential to affect pregnancy -- paving the way for a healthy pregnancy, a safe delivery and a healthy baby.
Occasionally, a child's medical condition may lead to pain that does not resolve quickly, leading to poor physical and psychological function in school, at home or in sports. The Outpatient Pediatric Pain Management Clinic at Children's Hospital evaluates your child by referral from your primary care or specialist provider. We help your child better manage pain and improve physical and psychological functioning, sometimes with medications.
