Brigham and Women’s Hospital is committed to doing everything possible to ensure the health of new mothers and their babies. Maternal-Fetal Medicine, also known as High-Risk Obstetrics, provides expert, multidisciplinary care for women and newborns who have complications identified prior to or during pregnancy. Our Center for Fetal Medicine and Prenatal Genetics provides comprehensive assessment and treatment of fetal disease. Women without pregnancy complications also are welcome for services, including genetic counseling. High-risk newborns are cared for by the specialty staff of our on-site Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Children’s Hospital Boston – connected by a pedestrian bridge to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Patient and Family Focused Care
We understand that each patient has personal and unique concerns. This is why we encourage our patients - and those close to them - to be active participants in care, and we work with each family to meet their needs. Through each step, we clearly explain every aspect of care – discussing all appropriate options to help the patient and their family make the best decisions.
