Maternal Fetal Medicine

Our maternal fetal medicine specialists and their team provide comprehensive obstetric care and management for high-risk pregnancies and at-risk deliveries, including diagnostic ultrasound, antenatal testing and fetal therapies. For expectant mothers at risk, it’s reassuring to know there are experienced maternal fetal experts right here in Missoula – as well as in outreach clinic locations throughout Western Montana. When treating pregnant women with chronic health problems, the goal of Community Children’s specialists is to keep the patient as healthy as possible while her body changes and her baby develops.

Our maternal fetal medicine services include:

  • Comprehensive ultrasound
  • Fetal echocardiogram
  • Fetal therapies and amniocentesis
  • Genetic testing and counseling
  • First trimester screening
  • Gestational diabetes management
  • Maternal mental health services

Our maternal fetal medicine team also cares for women who face unexpected problems that develop during pregnancy, such as early labor, bleeding or high blood pressure. Should a pregnant woman arrive at the hospital for any reason – because of an accident, the onset of a kidney infection or another condition that develops suddenly – the team is ready to help. When necessary, there is close collaboration with the patient’s primary OB/GYN physician to ensure the best possible coordinated care.
