Maternal & Fetal Specialty Care

Though pregnancy is a natural process, it does become complicated sometimes. When it does, the experts at the Swedish Maternal & Fetal Specialty Center are here to guide and support you. At Swedish, we work with you and your medical team toward our mutual goal:  A healthy baby and a healthy mother.

We help women who:

  • Have chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension or autoimmune diseases
  • Develop medical problems in pregnancy
  • Are pregnant with multiple babies, or a baby with an unexpected anomaly
  • Have a placental problem affecting baby’s or mother’s care
  • Have had complications in a previous pregnancy and want to have us guide their current pregnancy

We also support women who seek advice and counseling before they become pregnant. Some have had pregnancy problems in the past. Others are concerned about a family history of genetic problems. We offer a full range of genetic screenings and have the experts who can answer any question a prospective parent may have.

We handle all of your appointment and test scheduling for you.  And we’ll keep your primary care physician or obstetrician informed.

In addition, our patients have access to all of the comprehensive pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum services available at Swedish, including:

  • Around the clock availability of Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists and neonatology care
  • The area’s foremost obstetric and pediatric nurses, anesthesiologists and therapists
  • Postpartum support and care continuity
  • Our renowned Level IV neonatal intensive care unit

You may only need one or a few of these services.  But whatever your need, rest assured that you and your baby can both get the care you need in a single location.
