Our maternal fetal medicine clinic is a cooperative effort between Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, providing high-quality prenatal care to women with high-risk pregnancies.
Our physicians are board certified and have extensive training in obstetrics and high-risk pregnancies. From conception to delivery, our maternal fetal medicine (MFM) specialists provide a team approach – incorporating the referring physician, patient family, and all other necessary specialists – to ensure the very best possible care for women and their babies. Maternal fetal medicine services are currently offered at our Delafield Clinic.
- Genetic counseling
Genetic testing before or during pregnancy can help to provide more information about a baby's health. Genetic counselors provide support and information regarding genetic conditions, birth defects, and other potential problems.
- First trimester screening
First trimester screening is done between 11 and 13 weeks gestation and can indicate the level of risk for chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down syndrome or trisomy 18.
- Advanced ultrasound examinations
Ultrasound exams in our MFM clinic combine state-of-the-art imaging technology with experts in maternal fetal medicine and ultrasonography.
- Prenatal diagnostics
Prenatal diagnostic tests, such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniocentesis, can provide definitive information about a baby's condition. These tests do carry some risk, and are typically discussed during genetic counseling.
