A picture’s worth
a million heartbeats
As a Regional Perinatal Center, Saint Peter’s Maternal
Fetal Medicine division provides unique and highly
skilled health care for women who anticipate or are
experiencing a high‑risk pregnancy. Our expertise
in successfully treating high‑risk pregnancies is
why obstetricians—and so many women who
experience complications, pre‑term births or previous
miscarriages—put their trust in Saint Peter’s. Our
maternal fetal medicine team includes specially
trained high‑risk perinatal physicians, nurses and
technicians. Highly experienced, our team reviews
a mother’s medical history and conditions and
then determines the best course of action. This
knowledge is matched with advanced technology,
such as 3‑D ultrasound screening in our Antenatal
Testing Unit, so we can monitor a pregnancy to
ensure the best possible outcome.
