Unmatched MFM Co-Management

Maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialists are high-risk pregnancy obstetricians with three years of additional training in diagnosing, monitoring and treating maternal and fetal complications. Also called perinatologists, their goal is to keep both patients and their pregnancies healthy before, during and after birth.

We are one of only about 100 MFM specialist teaching programs in the U.S. Our team includes five full-time MFM specialists who also serve as faculty at the UNM Medical School.
