About Maternal Fetal Medicine Center

At Methodist Physicians | Maternal Fetal Medicine Center, we partner with OB/GYN physicians to help women with high-risk pregnancies get the care they deserve. We work as a team to combine our collective knowledge, expertise and management skills to help guide patients through their pregnancy. Patients will receive comprehensive ultrasounds, screening and diagnostics, and consultations through telemedicine with board certified OB/GYN physicians with subspecialty training in maternal-fetal medicine.


We utilize the most comprehensive set of diagnostic tools and techniques available to ensure the best outcome for both mother and baby.

  • 3D/4D Ultrasound
  • Antenatal testing including biophysical profile, non-stress tests and multi-vessel Doppler studies
  • Cervical length surveillance
  • Fetal chromosome screening from maternal blood
  • Fetal echocardiography
