Maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialists, also known as perinatologists, manage high-risk pregnancies affected by complex maternal-fetal conditions. Maternal-fetal medicine is considered a subspecialty of obstetrics. MFM specialists undergo training that includes four years in obstetrics and gynecology residency after completing medical school. After OB/GYN residency, MFM specialists complete a three-year maternal-fetal medicine fellowship where they conduct clinical research and receive extensive training in fetal ultrasound, prenatal diagnosis and management of complex obstetrical and medical complications affecting pregnancy.
