Our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Services
   

Consultations – When a pregnancy is complicated by additional or complex concurrent medical conditions, generalist obstetrical physicians rely upon our maternal-fetal medicine specialists to provide guidance for a prescribed plan for prenatal care.

Pregnancy management and co-management (in concert with your OB provider) – Depending on the complexity of care dictated by a high-risk pregnancy, some patients may continue ongoing simultaneous care with their generalist obstetrician along with our maternal-fetal medicine specialists, while others require the focused and dedicated management solely by our maternal-fetal medicine specialists.
Diabetes in Pregnancy – As a Sweet Success provider, certified by the State of California as providers in the field of diabetes in pregnancy, we provide comprehensive care with our integrated team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, dietitians, diabetes educators and licensed counselors, specifically trained to work with this challenging high risk condition. Diabetes in pregnancy, whether gestational or pregestational, may be co-managed with a generalist obstetrician or may require exclusive high risk management.
Inpatient Consults – Our team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists is available seven days a week at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, for consultation and evaluation of any patient designated by their generalist obstetrician as having a complicated or high-risk pregnancy.
 
High-risk hospital and delivery services with:
Perinatal OBs in-hospital at all times – So that our patients’ needs are attended to as they arise, there is a rotating staff of phycicians that provide two perinatal obstetricians and a certified nurse midwife at all times.
 
Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists available on-call at all times – The complex needs of our high-risk patient population is highly dynamic and requires ongoing evaluation and intervention. Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists are in house daily, and available either by phone or on-call as needed 24 hours a day.
 
Maternal transports – Our practice supports the complex pregnancy cases that arise for many local and outlying communities. If a patient’s condition, whether maternal or fetal, cannot be managed safely by their local in-patient facility, transport to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center and the UBCP Maternal-Fetal Medicine group’s care may become necessary.
