Maternal Fetal Medicine

Expectant mothers who have a higher risk for complications during pregnancy are with the right team when they come to Crozer Health.

Specialists in maternal fetal medicine are available 24-hours a day to consult with other physicians and care for patients. 

Comprehensive and Specialized Care

Crozer Health's experienced, compassionate perinatologists provide the most comprehensive and specialized care to women who are at-risk or who are experiencing complications during pregnancy, including premature labor. Our Perinatal Mental Health Program works with women on an outpatient basis to help them cope with the emotions associated with high-risk pregnancies.

Maternal Fetal Medicine Team

Our maternal fetal medicine group includes a team to help ensure a healthy pregnancy. Perinatologists are a vital part of the team because they specialize in the identification, education and treatment of high-risk pregnant women. The team includes:

  • General obstetricians
  • Midwives
  • Perinatologists
  • Genetic counselor
  • Neonatologists
  • Specially trained nurses

High-Risk Testing Centers

When you are expecting, but are at a higher risk for complications during your pregnancy, you want only the best of prenatal care. You will find that care at Crozer Health.

We offer you a choice of two excellent testing centers:

  • The Center for Perinatal Medicine at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, Chester, PA
  • The Center for Perinatal Medicine at Delaware County Memorial Hospital, Drexel Hill, PA

Your physician or midwife may refer you to either Crozer’s or DCMH's perinatal center for consultation services before and during pregnancy, as well as for fetal growth assessment and testing.

Visits to both Centers require referrals from a patient’s primary obstetrician or midwife.

For more information, contact your healthcare provider.
