WHAT IS A PERINATOLOGIST?

A perinatologist, also known as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, is a physician who specializes in the care of high risk pregnancies. Women who are at risk of developing problems, or who have a history of complications during pregnancy, may be referred to this type of specialist care. The goal of this medical professional is to help a woman have a pregnancy that is as healthy as possible, and to address any problems as soon as they emerge. To become a perinatologist, a doctor needs to complete a residency in obstetrics, followed by a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine.All of the M.F.M. doctors at Ocean Perinatology are highly trained and dedicated to providing the highest care possible.
