Urania Magriples, MD, says that her greatest reward is taking care of women who have suffered a pregnancy loss or a prior poor outcome. “I have had the privilege to become close friends with many of my patients over the span of my career, and seeing their children grow up is wonderful,” she says.
She has spent more than 24 years as a specialist in maternal-fetal medicine and studies models for delivery of obstetric care, such as the nationally recognized CenteringPregnancy® Program at Yale New Haven Hospital, which allows expectant mothers to receive support from other women while gaining knowledge and skills related to pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. She is a member of the Global Health Committee for the Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, whose mission is to help pregnant women in resource-limited settings around the world.
Dr. Magriples has been recognized for many years as a Top Doctor in the state in Connecticut Magazine. She is an associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine.
