Biography

Molly McAdow, MD, PhD, is an obstetrician-gynecologist who specializes in maternal-fetal medicine, or high-risk pregnancy, and says she finds it meaningful to help women during trying times. 

“Many people think pregnancy will be an easy experience and aren’t aware of the challenges that are fairly common,” Dr. McAdow says. “Being with women when they are going through unsettling experiences is important work. And fortunately, we still have a happy ending with the majority of our high-risk patients. It’s just that their overall pregnancy took a more complicated course.” 

Often, Dr. McAdow says it’s a matter of letting a woman know that whatever problem she is experiencing is not her fault. “I like to take the burden off the patient. I think women tend to blame themselves for anything that goes wrong,” Dr. McAdow says. 

Dr. McAdow’s research interests include preeclampsia (a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure), including its biochemical and genetic aspects.
