In-House Maternal Fetal Healthcare Q & A

What is Maternal-Fetal Healthcare?

Maternal-fetal healthcare involves the practice of treating high-risk pregnancies. At Reston Women’s Center, the team can handle every non-routine pregnancy. Pregnancy conditions that benefit from maternal-fetal healthcare include:

  • Pregnancies derived from IVF, ICSI, or other assisted reproduction
  • Pregnancies that threaten the life of the mother or fetus
  • Mothers with high blood pressure, preeclampsia, or bleeding
  • Abnormal growth rates of the fetus

Mothers with thyroid disease, diabetes, obesity, HIV/AIDS, or substance abuse problems also benefit from maternal-fetal medical care. A maternal-fetal healthcare specialist offers support if you face unexpected problems during pregnancy, such as early labor.

Should you be pregnant and experience trauma or an infection, maternal-fetal healthcare specialists can help preserve the health of you and your fetus.

The maternal-fetal medicine specialists at Reston Women’s Center have completed an additional two to three years of education and training, so they’re uniquely equipped to support high-risk pregnancies.

What Therapies and Treatments are Involved in Maternal-Fetal Healthcare?

Besides routine screenings and prenatal monitoring, maternal-fetal healthcare services offered by Reston Women’s Center include:

Nuchal translucency screening

Maternal serum screening


Non-stress test

Doppler studies

Genetic ultrasound

Preconception counseling and genetic testing

Management of gestational diabetes

If it’s revealed that your baby has a congenital disability or growth problem, the OB/GYNs at Reston Women’s Center can start treatment before birth.

What Type of Care Should I Expect if I Have a High-Risk Pregnancy?

While the staff at Reston Women’s Center provides detailed, customized care to every pregnant woman, women with high-risk pregnancies may receive more screening, testing, and treatments than usual.

You may be scheduled for more prenatal visits than usual and have additional ultrasound tests. Your vitals, including blood pressure, are monitored closely. The team continually assesses maternal and fetal well-being. In-house maternal-fetal healthcare means you don’t have to seek a specialist to support a healthy pregnancy and birth.

If you’re pregnant, or considering becoming pregnant, and need an OB/GYN who specializes in complicated pregnancies, call the office or book an appointment online to get the care you need for you and your baby.
