Clínicas Especializadas

Maternal Fetal Medicine

Sometimes women who are pregnant are considered “high-risk.” This includes mothers-to-be with chronic health problems as well as mothers who face unexpected problems during pregnancy like high blood pressure, early labor, or bleeding. For these women, BMC has Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) physicians.

Congratulations soon-to-be parents! We are thrilled that you’ve chosen Boston Medical Center for care while you are pregnant. Maybe you are pregnant for the first time.
