Maternal-fetal medicine is a sub-specialty within the field of obstetrics that is often referred to as perinatology. Physicians in this sub-specialty focus on high risk pregnancies and complication.

Obstetrician Procedures and Treatments:


Obstetricians perform interviews, pelvic examinations, ultrasounds, tests, labor induction, rupture of membranes, vaginal and c-section deliveries, episiotomies, and fetal monitoring during pregnancy. Obstetricians often perform traditional gynecological duties in addition to obstetrical duties.

Those wishing to pursue a maternal-fetal medicine sub-specialty will need an additional 2 to 3 years of education and clinical experience in an approved fellowship program.
