Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Message from the Division Director

pic_lindsayResidents spend nearly half of their rotation time working with the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine on the busy obstetrical services at Grady and Emory University Hospital Midtown, where they can expect to encounter every conceivable obstetrical complication. Residents completing this program will be thoroughly grounded in obstetrical practice.

Grady Memorial Hospital
has a spacious Labor and Delivery Suite and an Antepartum/Postpartum Unit where state-of-the-art technology and family-oriented obstetrics are utilized.

The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine teaches and provides for obstetrical care of both high-risk and normal gravidas. A large, computerized database provides prenatal records, laboratory data, antepartum testing data, and obstetrical outcomes for patient care and for research.

There is a three-year fellowship in MFM supervised by faculty in the division. 

The division provides separate attendings for daily teaching rounds and in-house consultation on both the Antepartum Unit and the Labor and Delivery Unit at Grady Memorial Hospital. In addition, intrapartum care, perinatal mortality conferences, and an obstetrical endocrine seminar are presented.

Division members staff the Emory Regional Perinatal Center at Grady Hospital, where annually thousands of ultrasound and electronic fetal monitoring tests provide data for fetal evaluation. This state-of-the-art center is one of six high-risk infant care centers in the state. The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division was one of the first specialty units in the country. Faculty also practice at Emory University Hospital Midtown. For more information about patient care at these locations, please visit our Emory Healthcare site
