Best Prenatal Imaging

When your pregnancy is anything but routine, Mary Washington Maternal Fetal Medicine, a department of Mary Washington Hospital, is here to provide you and your baby with the best care possible. As the maternal fetal medicine experts in the Fredericksburg region, we are experienced with working collaboratively with your obstetrician. Our team performs pre-natal testing with state-of-the-art imaging and manage a wide range of pregnancy issues and conditions with the latest treatments and protocols.

Maternal fetal medicine specialists treat two patients at the same time, both mom and baby. As experienced medical practitioners, we know the importance of partnering with the mom-to-be, her family, her obstetrician, and medical team to achieve the best possible outcome.

We serve families who have seen high-risk pregnancies in the past, women with chronic health conditions, those who develop unexpected problems during their pregnancy, and women with multiple babies.

Maternal fetal specialists also provide post-natal care for women who experience complications and work closely with intensive care specialists to provide care for new moms who have specific treatment needs.

A high-risk pregnancy is one that requires extra care and attention, and we are here for you throughout the process.

Below are some reasons you may need to see a maternal fetal medicine specialist:

  • If you have a pre-existing health condition and would like to become pregnant.
  • If you have a pre-existing health condition and are currently pregnant.
  • If you’ve had a complication with a previous pregnancy.
  • If you are currently pregnant, and the fetus has developed a complication.
  • If you have learned that your fetus may have a birth defect.
  • If you are having twins, triplets, or more.

Talk to your obstetrician about a referral to Mary Washington Maternal Fetal Medicine.
