Maternal Fetal Medicine

Perinatal Center at Emory Healthcare

The maternal-fetal specialists at Emory Perinatal Center have extensive experience supporting parents-to-be on their journey – from conception to pregnancy and labor and delivery. Here, you’ll have access to evidence-based services from our compassionate and understanding team. All with the added benefit of being backed by one of the most comprehensive academic health care systems in the Southeast.

Compassionate Care for High-Risk Pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy can seem scary. But our team of specialists, nurses, genetic counselors, perinatal sonographers and many others are all here for you. That can begin before you even become pregnant. We can provide counsel and advice to help you before you get pregnant and understand what to expect if you have a pre-existing medical condition. Or, if you were diagnosed as high-risk during your pregnancy, we’ll be here to answer your questions and ease fears. Our team has experience managing many types of high-risk pregnancies, including:

  • Advanced maternal age
  • Multi-fetal (twins, triplets, high multiples)
  • Pre-existing health conditions such as hypertension and diabetes)

Comprehensive Care

No two people or pregnancies are the same. You need – and deserve - specialized care that’s tailored just to you. The Perinatal Center at Emory Healthcare offers many different services, including:

  • Genetic Screenings. The best path forward starts with finding answers. We offer genetic screenings for chromosomal abnormalities, known familial conditions and other conditions.
  • Education and Counseling. We work hand-in-hand with families to help them understand an in-utero diagnosis or a health condition.
  • Testing and Imaging. Our Center offers nonstress tests during pregnancy, ultrasounds (routine and detailed), blood draws and much more to give us a clear picture of your and your baby’s health.
  • Coordinated Care. If you need additional care, we’ll help refer you to the right specialists – whether that’s pediatric cardiology, fetal MRI, urology, home health and much more.
