About Maternal-Fetal Medicine

The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to women in central Illinois who face complicated or high-risk pregnancies. This type of pregnancy can include maternal diabetes, preeclampsia, pre-term labor and multi-fetal gestations, as well as other, less common conditions.

The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine provides services that span preconceptional risk assessment and counseling, care during pregnancy and post-partum follow up. Using an integrated care approach, the Division provides patients with modern, prenatal screening and diagnostic tools, including:

  • Amniocentesis
  • Biophysical profiles
  • Non-stress tests
  • Doppler evaluations

Our providers work in association with the South Central Illinois Perinatal Center, located at HSHS St. John's Hospital, to ensure continuity of care before and after delivery. Our team includes three full-time physicians, who have undergone advanced, subspecialty training in maternal-fetal medicine, and a genetic counselor.

We are dedicated to educating OB-GYN residents and Southern Illinois University medical students. Members of our faculty are also engaged in clinical and basic research, aimed at improving diagnoses and therapy through the advancement of knowledge and discovery.
