Maternal Fetal Medicine
The Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) program offers women advanced sub-specialized expertise in both maternal and fetal complications during pregnancy as well as outpatient consultation, ultrasound, genetic counseling and management of medical problems during pregnancy.
The MFM team, Lisa Dunn-Albanese, MD, Daniel Katz, MD, Sarah Little, MD, Katherine Economy, MD and Yael Hoffman-Sage, MD, provides sensitive and advanced care for complicated pregnancies through integrated, multidisciplinary care specifically designed to coordinate the intricate medical management during the pregnancy. The program has specialists in high-risk pregnancy from Brigham and Women’s Hospital who work on-site at Newton-Wellesley to provide ongoing evaluation and monitoring.
The MFM program offers high-risk pregnancy management of medical complications during pregnancy such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiac disease, seizure disorders, rheumatologic disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune diseases and thyroid disease. Patients with a history of pregnancy complications, such as pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction and preterm birth also receive individualized management plans. The program also provides genetic consultation for risk assessment and various prenatal screening options. Some of the additional services include:
- Pre-conception counseling to review medical history and discuss potential obstetrical challenges.
- Fetal procedures related to multiple pregnancies.
- Obstetrical ultrasound, fetal echocardiography, Doppler ultrasound and genetic sonography imaging for fetal assessment.
- Early detection of fetal abnormalities with maternal serum screenings and ultrasound screenings.
- Comprehensive prenatal diagnoses using on-site amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling.
Partners Reproductive Medicine
At the Partners Reproductive Medicine Center, specialists from Newton-Wellesley work with the Reproductive Endocrinology Departments at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital to offer a variety of options for couples dealing with infertility.
The Center offers patients access to world-class specialists from two of the country’s most respected infertility treatment centers. The medical team, Mark Hornstein, MD, Rachel Ashby, MD, and Jan Shifren, MD, practices the most advanced approaches available for treating infertility in an atmosphere that provides the utmost privacy, comfort and convenience.
Patients receive a comprehensive infertility evaluation by a reproductive endocrinologist to determine the appropriate tests necessary to diagnose a specific issue. Most couples are successful using relatively simple, low-tech methods such as hormonal therapies to help women ovulate, combined with either timed intercourse or intrauterine insemination. However, patients also have access to the latest assisted reproductive technologies including invitro fertilization (IVF).
