      It can be scary to learn you have a high-risk pregnancy. The maternal and fetal medicine specialists at AAMC are here to make sure you get the specialized care you need, and help you feel more at ease.

      Your maternal and fetal medicine specialist has specific training in pregnancy complications and will work alongside your OB-GYN to care for you throughout your pregnancy. Our goal is to identify problems that may come up in a high-risk pregnancy. Your care may include:

      • Amniocentesis (Amniotic fluid test for possible genetic problems)
      • Chorionic villous sampling (Tissue sample to check for congenital abnormalities)
      • Genetic counseling (Help confirming or ruling out genetic conditions)
      • Gestational diabetes education (Information for coping with diabetes during pregnancy)
      • 3D sonogram
      • Perinatal diagnostic procedures (Antepartum testing, biophysician profile and NST)

       

      If you have a low-risk pregnancy, a certified nurse midwife may be part of your childbirth plan.

      All nurse midwives at AAMC are licensed by the state of Maryland to provide maternity, birth, postpartum and routine gynecological care. When needed, your midwife may consult with one of our OB-GYNs 24 hours a day. We’re as low tech as you want and as high tech as you need.

      If your baby is born prematurely or needs special medical care at birth, rest assured he or she will receive the best possible care at AAMC’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). As one of the only hospitals in Maryland with a Level III NICU, AAMC cares for more than  500 premature and critically ill infants each year. Our experienced team of neonatal experts and specially trained neonatal nurses will monitor your baby constantly and use the latest technology available for life-supporting care.  

      We know it’s stressful to have a baby in the NICU. That’s why part of your baby’s specialized care includes personalized services for you and your family. This includes:

      • Direct communication about your baby’s progress
      • Individual and family support
      • Education about your child’s condition

      AAMC maternity nurses are an important part of your care team. They work closely with your OB-GYN or midwife to offer you support, encouragement and information throughout your pregnancy and childbirth journey. Our registered nurses specialize in women’s health and have years of experience, coupled with advanced training and education to provide you personalized, expert care.

      While you’re in the hospital, an AAMC maternity hospitalist may help coordinate your care. Our OB-GYN hospitalists work together with many of our midwives or doctors to provide around-the-clock care during your stay.

      Hospitalists can respond to your needs quickly, and will keep your doctor informed about your condition throughout your stay. They are also available to consult or help with any emergencies. 

       

      AAMC obstetricians and gynecologists (OB-GYNs) provide expert care throughout your pregnancy and delivery. All of our OB-GYNS are certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and give you experienced, compassionate care. Whether you need maternity, birth, postpartum or gynecological care, our doctors work with you to support your individual needs and offer the latest medical techniques.

      AAMC proudly partners with area pediatricians. During your pregnancy, we recommend you choose a pediatrician at least one month prior to your due date, and confirm that the pediatrician will care for newborns. The best place to begin looking for a pediatrician is asking for recommendations from your primary care physician, obstetrician, family, friends, and colleagues.
