Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM)
About the Division
The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) comprises fellowship-trained subspecialists and fellows in training who care for mothers and unborn fetuses with complex pregnancy related conditions.
The clinical mission of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is to provide consultative and primary high-risk obstetrics care to the women of Cincinnati and surrounding areas. We provide inpatient care for women with high risk pregnant conditions at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. We also support a complex fetal surgical program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Consultation services are supported at several area medical centers including West Chester Hospital Medical Center.
The educational mission of MFM is to teach residents, fellows, medical students and other health care professionals who are in training the practice of high risk obstetrics, prenatal diagnosis, fetal care and medical management of mothers with significant co-morbidities.
Additionally, the division is tasked with health care research in pregnancy related conditions such as diabetes mellitus during pregnancy, hypertensive disorders in pregnancy, preterm birth prevention and other maternal or fetal pathophysiologic complications.
