The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center's Maternal Fetal Medicine program has a rich tradition of excellence and leadership in patient care, research and the education of future leaders in the field. U.S.News & World Report consistently recognizes our expert physicians as being among "America's Top Doctors," and we have four out of the magazine's five "Ohio's Top Doctors" in perinatology.

Ohio State's Maternal Fetal Medicine team is the region's leading team of high-risk prenatal specialists. Our specialists are dedicated to working with you and your obstetrician to deliver the very best care possible and, of course, peace of mind. Our highly trained, multidisciplinary team provides access to the most advanced diagnostic procedures and treatments while providing the individualized approach to care that revolves around you and your baby.

Your care is managed by our nationally and internationally recognized team of specialists, many of whom have been designated as some of "America's Best Doctors." As a patient, you benefit from specialists who are also trained in teaching. Many are editors and authors of textbooks that are utilized daily in obstetric care throughout the United States.

Our specialized programs include one of the top five largest Diabetes in Pregnancy programs in the country, preterm birth prevention, genetic counseling, the only fetal treatment program in central Ohio and the only maternal fetal medicine specialist in central Ohio offering treatment for Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS).

Thirty Years of Ohio State's Maternal Fetal Medicine
For more than 30 years, our specialists have advanced the nation's obstetrical care through innovations such as controlling gestational diabetes, identifying the only two clinically useful risk markers for premature birth (cervical length and fetal fibronectin), managing long-term needs of hypertension in pregnancy and advancing in-utero fetal surgery.

At the area's only comprehensive maternal fetal medicine program that is part of an academic medical center, our patients and their obstetricians have access to and are able to apply the latest research and the best practices, many of which were developed and refined right here at The Ohio State University Wexner Center. That means we can detect problems faster, intervene earlier, treat more effectively and manage care more efficiently, so you can expect the best.

In addition, when it comes to high-risk pregnancies and deliveries, we are prepared. We operate a large Level III nursery, and our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the highest level of care, means we're qualified to handle deliveries with special circumstances, such as the birth of multiple babies. We're staffed with many specialists in-house, including neonatologists, who specialize in newborn infant care. So even if you're having a normal pregnancy, if an unexpected need should arise, you can rest easier knowing we're prepared to handle it.
