Maternal Fetal Medicine
If you’re pregnant or plan to become pregnant, you want a team dedicated to caring for both you and your unborn baby. And if you’ve had health concerns during a previous pregnancy, you also need experts with experience. With VCU Health, you’re in the right place. We are those experts.
We’re your team in the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine. (“Maternal” refers to pregnant mothers. “Fetal” refers to the unborn baby.) Together, we bring you decades of training and care, including the latest advancements in both medicine and comfort. So for both the simplest and the most complicated pregnancies, we’re planning ahead for those first precious hugs.
We’re changing lives
At the center of VCU Health’s maternal-fetal team are experienced, compassionate caregivers. Every day, we change lives for:
- Healthy mothers and babies
- Women with pregnancy-related health conditions, such as preeclampsia (high blood pressure)
- Women with health conditions like heart disease or diabetes that can affect both the unborn baby and mother
- Unborn babies with birth defects and conditions that can be passed down through families
We’re bringing you more
We’re always looking for more we can do for our patients — for you as mom, for your tiny baby, plus your family. We’re passionate about working alongside you, with a focus on your education, comfort and needs. That’s why we offer CenteringPregnancy®. It’s a novel way to learn about pregnancy and childbirth and to get to know other expectant parents. VCU Health was the first hospital in the state to earn accreditation for this service, and that’s something we’re proud of. Interested? Learn More.
So, from high-tech care to compassionate support, you can count on us to make a difference in the life of your growing family.
