At CaroMont Perinatal, families are counseled about the specific problem
they are facing during pregnancy. We develop a management plan and provide
comprehensive care. The knowledge of a particular problem in advance may
benefit and improve the outcome for both mom and baby. We offer Advanced
Obstetrical Ultrasounds, Fetal Genetic Screening and Testing, and consultations.
All patients are referred by their OB/GYN provider.

What is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist?
A Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist is an individual who upon graduation
from Medical School completes a 4 year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology
followed by 2-3 years of fellowship training. Maternal-Fetal Medicine
fellowship training provides additional education and practical experience
to gain special competence in various obstetrical, medical and surgical
complications of pregnancy.
