Maternal and fetal medicine deals with women patients who have complications of pregnancy. An obstetrician/ gynecologist treats women with high-risk or complicated pregnancies. A high-risk pregnancy, where the mother and fetus need special monitoring and medical care, may be a result of the motherís diabetes, high blood pressure, or a seizure disorder. The fetus may have genetic disorders, or other problems that affect its development. Sometimes if a woman is pregnant with twins or triplets or more, she may have additional health problems, or she may have a history of pregnancy complications. The obstetrician/gynecologist has special knowledge and skills to deal with these health problems and work with the mother toward the safe delivery of a healthy baby.
