The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Johns Hopkins provides comprehensive care to women and their families throughout pregnancy. Our experts are specially trained to care for women with high-risk pregnancies, and offer prenatal care, genetic counseling, fetal ultrasound, and diagnosis and treatment of rare pregnancy complications. Our goal as caregivers is to provide our patients with the support and education that they need to deliver a healthy baby.

Why Choose Johns Hopkins
Our experienced maternal-fetal specialists (perinatologists) offer evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of maternal and fetal conditions. Physicians are available for consultations during pregnancy, during delivery and after the birth of your baby — and are also here for emergency consultations. We can work with your primary provider to make recommendations for your care.
From maternal-fetal medicine specialists to genetic counselors, sonographers and nursing staff, our team works together to guide women and their partners through the process of genetic counseling, fetal diagnostics and treatment, and labor and delivery.
In addition to caring for patients, our team engages in research to improve outcomes for mothers and their babies throughout pregnancy and beyond. We are leading experts in maternal and fetal medicine because of the expertise and diverse research interests of our faculty, as well as our collaborations with other disciplines and departments across Johns Hopkins Medicine.
