Maternal-Fetal Medicine in St. Louis

Maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) physicians at Mercy's Maternal and Fetal Medicine Clinic at 10004 Kennerly Road in St. Louis, are high-risk obstetricians, also known as perinatologists. They are trained in obstetrics and gynecology and have an in-depth understanding of pregnancy complications and treatments.

Mercy Clinic MFM specialists work in collaboration with obstetricians to provide care for high-risk women through consultation, co-management of a woman's pregnancy, total care (including prenatal care and delivery) and direction of care before (pre-conception), during and after pregnancy. A pregnant woman may be referred to an MFM specialist for a variety of reasons. Many women are referred for prenatal testing to evaluate fetal growth and other characteristics. Others may have a medical condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or develop complications that require close monitoring and care.
