Maternal Fetal Medicine

Fortunately, most pregnancies go smoothly from conception to delivery. However, for some women, medical problems prior to pregnancy, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or conditions that develop during pregnancy, such as gestational diabetes, placenta previa, premature labor, or multiple births, make them at higher risk for complications.

The experienced Maternal Fetal Medicine team at Lowell General Hospital, in collaboration Tufts Medical Center and Tufts Children's Hospital provides outpatient and inpatient counseling and diagnostic services. The program includes outpatient prenatal diagnostic ultrasound and procedures such as Nuchal Translucency Screening, amniocentesis, as well as genetic counseling and counseling about issues related to high-risk pregnancies.
