Delaware Center for Maternal & Fetal Medicine of Christiana Care
When complications arise, the Delaware Center for Maternal & Fetal Medicine of Christiana Care gives our smallest patients and their mothers special care. The center’s maternal-fetal medicine specialists, also known as perinatologists, have advanced training and experience to care for you if your pregnancy is high-risk due to medical, surgical or obstetrical factors, including:
- Chronic illness.
- Poor obstetric history.
- Pregnancy over age 35.
- Previous pregnancy loss.
- Multiple gestations (twins, triplets, etc.).
- Preterm labor.
- Hypertension (high blood pressure).
Our technically advanced equipment and facilities help us diagnose your baby’s risks for genetic, growth and structural differences. Some babies can be treated with medications or through surgery while still in your uterus.
The center also integrates comprehensive genetics counseling to identify risks and help you and your family make decisions about medical care for your baby.
Appointments with the center are made by referral through your primary obstetrician.
