Maternal and Fetal Medicine


"I believe that pregnancy is a life-changing experience, cherished universally in both ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. As a maternal-fetal medicine physician, I specialize in the care of families in the extraordinary situations, such as, past complicated pregnancies, moms-to be with genetic or chronic health problems, or unexpected concerns that develop during pregnancy affecting either mom or baby.

To guide families in these complex circumstances, I partner with local and national experts in multiple specialties. At the same time, to support an experience that celebrates the normal aspects of your pregnancy as well, I encourage you to continue seeing your regular obstetrician or midwife and to meet with me to focus on the high-risk issues only. Alternatively, I can care directly for all aspects of the pregnancy."
