Frequently Asked Questions
We specialize in caring for women whose pregnancies are considered to be at high risk due to medical, surgical, and obstetrical risk factors.
Our award-winning Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists, also known as perinatologists, have provided care in the North Central New Jersey area for almost 20 years. While many of our patients come from Morris, Essex, Union, Hudson, Monmouth, Middlesex, and Sussex counties, we’ve provided care for women throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York.
Our team consists of extensively trained and board certified physicians, nurses, ultrasonographers and genetic counselors, carefully assembled to provide our patients with the best care possible.
A pre-conceptional consultation prior to your pregnancy allows you to meet with our perinatologist to review your medical and pregnancy history. A carefully tailored and individualized care plan can be made to optimize your chances of a successful pregnancy outcome.
For women who are already pregnant, typical procedures include first and second trimester genetic risk assessment, high resolution fetal ultrasound (including 3D/4D), MaterniT21™ PLUS Down syndrome test, chorionic villous sampling, amniocentesis, fetal echocardiography, fetal growth monitoring, Doppler blood flow studies, fetal biophysical evaluations (non-stress test, amniotic fluid volume assessments and biophysical profiles), and select fetal therapy.
We know that many patients will want pictures of their baby’s face or other areas as mementos and we will do our best to get those for you as time and individual situations permit.
We will make every effort to bring your children into the room AFTER the exam is finished as time and individual situations permit. If a child is brought with you to the office, we ask that a spouse/partner or other caregiver remain with the child in the waiting area until called.
