Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM)

 In Lost And Found

Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) is the new term that I learnt. What does this mean? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, it means:

Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) is the branch of obstetrics that focuses on the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies. Management includes monitoring and treatment including comprehensive ultrasound, chorionic villus sampling, genetic amniocentesis, and fetal surgery or treatment. Obstetricians who practice maternal-fetal medicine are also known as perinatologists. This is a subspecialty to obstetrics and gynecology mainly used for patients with high-risk pregnancies.

In short, it means I need to find such person to help me with my next pregnancy. How complicated. He or she need to be trained to manage high risk pregnancy in general…
