High-risk pregnancy

If your primary care provider, obstetrician or other specialist has a concern regarding your pregnancy, you may be referred to a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, which is a health care provider who specializes in caring for those with high-risk pregnancies and babies with complex needs.

Genetic counseling

Genetic counselors see patients and families for a variety of reasons. Often it is to discuss testing and screening options or to review previous test results.
