Maternal-Fetal Medicine Consults and Referrals

For Physicians

To reach a physician at the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, or to receive additional information about maternal-fetal medicine services, call (617) 732-4208. This number is staffed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. A representative can direct you to the physician with whom you wish to speak as well as facilitate consultations and second opinions. Partners physicians who would like to request a consultation are encouraged to use the Physician Gateway system.

Inpatient transfer services are handled by Partners MDConnect. MDConnect is a joint program between Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, serving as a community physician's direct link to the transfer and transport services of these hospitals. With one call, Partners MDConnect will coordinate timely communication between referring and receiving physicians, locate inpatient beds, and arrange transport. Ground-based, mobile ICUs, staffed with specially trained nurses and paramedics, are also available through this service. To reach Partners MDConnect call (877) 637-3337.
