Maternal-Fetal Medicine and High Risk Obstetrics

Welcome to Women’s Health Consultants!

Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our focus is the management of pregnant patients with high-risk complications. Such high-risk complications can include past or present obstetrical problems, medical, surgical, and genetic issues, which may place the pregnant woman or her child at risk.

In accordance with patient needs, we offer routine and high-risk prenatal care pre-conceptual and genetic counseling. In addition, our staff is trained in the procedures, technologies, and methods of care available to improve pregnancy outcome. These methods can include a diagnostic amniocentesis, ultrasound, and assessment for fetal well-being.

Although complicated pregnancies often require “high tech” care, we recognize that this birth is a special time for you and your family and strive to keep the process as natural as possible.

Our physicians are board certified Perinatologists with specialization in fetal ultrasonography and our nurse practitioners are board certified in Women’s Health Care and can accommodate our patients for pregnancy and gynecologic care.

There will be a physician on call 24 hours every day. Patients that phone after office hours for an emergency (312) 997-2229, will have care directed by the on call physician.
