Maternal Fetal Medicine

Catawba Valley Medical Center’s Maternal and Fetal Care program provides state- of-the-art care for women with high-risk pregnancies.The team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists, sonographers and nurses are at the cutting edge of clinical management in high-risk pregnancies. Our partner physicians, from Carolinas Medical Center Women’s Institute of Charlotte, are specially trained to perform detailed level II ultrasound, fetal echocardiography and diagnostic tests such as chorionic villus sampling, amniocentesis and fetal blood sampling. They perform ultrasound- guided in-utero blood transfusions and other in-utero procedures if necessary.

Women with a history of a complicated pregnancy or women who are currently experiencing medical complications in pregnancy can receive ongoing care and management through our program. Women with a family history of genetic disorders or risk factors for birth defects have access to an experienced team of genetic counselors who provide and coordinate care with our team of maternal-fetal medicine sub-specialists. Our staff will work closely with your physician to monitor your health and the health of your baby. We are available for consultation if you or your physician have questions regarding how best to care for you during your pregnancy. Another way we provide safe care close to home.
