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. These physicians specialize in caring for women with high-risk pregnancies. They are OB/GYN doctors who do an additional 2-3 years of education to specialize as high-risk pregnancy experts. MFM physicians also care for the mother and the baby in the event of a complication during pregnancy.  This range of services allows for the best possible outcome for mother and baby. Services include:

"I’m very happy I met Dr. Abbott. I’m very happy that I was able to find out my diagnosis. After my two miscarriages I was left with no answers. Until I met Dr. Abbott. I’m looking forward for this pregnancy."
