About Southern Colorado Maternal Fetal Medicine

What is Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM)?

A maternal fetal medicine physician is an expert in the diagnosis and management of both maternal and fetal complications of pregnancy.

An MFM subspecialist has completed 4 years of an OB/Gyn residency followed by 2-3 years of specialty training in MFM.

This training also prepares us to perform complex procedures and ultrasound examinations.

Our Approach to MFM Care

Our goal is to provide the exceptional and compassionate obstetric services for patients with high risk pregnancies in partnership with their primary ObGyn, Family Medicine physician or midwife.

We will work very closely with your primary provider to ensure the best outcome possible for your pregnancy.

Our goal is to create an environment where compassion and expert medical care for high risk pregnancies are combined.
