Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a branch of medicine that treats women with high-risk pregnancies. At SIU Medicine, our specialists provide clinical care for women and their babies throughout the region. We also help advance our field through research and medical education.
Individuals who benefit from maternal-fetal medicine care include pregnant women experiencing gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, pre-term labor, fetal growth problems, previous miscarriages and multiple babies including twins and triplets. Our providers support women before, during, and after pregnancy with comprehensive and modern services including advanced ultrasound imaging and genetic testing.
