Medical conditions during pregnancy can affect the pregnant mother, the unborn baby or both. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate treatment and support across a broad spectrum of complications, such as:
- Birth defects
- Bleeding and clotting disorders
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Kidney disease
- Preterm labor
- Twins, triplets and more
Physicians in our division are the primary providers of OB/GYN ultrasound services at VCU Health. Using state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, we examine and diagnose pregnant patients and those with gynecologic issues.
Residents gain experience with high-risk pregnancies, antepartum care and ultrasounds throughout all four years of the program, and we encourage those interested in pursuing a maternal-fetal medicine fellowship to gain additional training during an elective rotation.
