What is a Perinatologist?

A perinatologist is an obstetrician who has special training in maternal-fetal medicine or high-risk obstetrics. The perinatologist or maternal-fetal medicine experts at Ocean Perinatology are all Board certified obstetricians (and, thus, Fellows of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) who are also Board certified in the subspecialty of maternal-fetal medicine.

As perinatologists, we:

  • Provide total prenatal care for patients with both low and high-risk pregnancies;
  • Provide consultation and recommendations for pregnant patients under the care of another health care provider;
  • Carry out detailed ultrasounds for pregnant women with or without a referral (please see the ultrasound section);
  • Provide genetic screening and prenatal diagnostic services;
  • Provide preconception counseling to women to assess overall health, pregnancy related risks and recommendations to optimize future pregnancy outcomes.

Our dedicated team of specialists work together closely with each other, our patients and other health care providers to ensure the highest level of care for pregnant women or women contemplating pregnancy.
