Whether planning for or anticipating the birth of your baby, every woman hopes for an uneventful pregnancy and easy delivery. For most, this is exactly what happens. However, women can face unexpected difficulties and complications.

Our experts in Maternal-Fetal Medicine can help. 

"At Yale Medicine, you'll have access to a multitude of medical and surgical specialists, whether it's working with a thoracic surgeon for a pregnant patient who had an aortic dissection to taking care of patients who have transplanted kidneys and livers," says Katherine Campbell, MD, MPH, a high-risk pregnancy specialist. "For the baby, we collaborate with geneticists, genetic counselors, pediatric cardiologists, neonatologists and pediatric urologists."
