Our Specialized Programs and Clinics
Personalized care for a patient with a complicated pregnancy is provided through the programs and specialty clinics staffed by Ohio State’s Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists. Our programs and clinics include:
Diabetes in Pregnancy Program
— This program serves expectant mothers who have a pre-existing diabetic condition, as well as women who developed gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Learn more.
— Women in this program are at risk of spontaneously delivering a premature baby due to a history of preterm singleton birth (a single baby born before 37 weeks of pregnancy) following the premature onset of labor, cervical dilation or ruptured membranes. Learn more.
Fetal Treatment Program
— Women in this program are carrying a baby who has been diagnosed with an abnormality. Our specialists intervene during pregnancy to treat fetal disease and correct complications that could form the basis of diseases that develop later in life. Learn more.
— Staffed by a board certified physician who specializes in both maternal fetal medicine and pediatric genetics and three board certified genetic counselors, we help women and families who may be at an increased risk for having a child with a birth defect or genetic condition. Our team has advanced training in genetics, the study of how traits are passed from parents to children. Learn more.
Substance Abuse and Prevention Clinic
— Expectant mothers with addictions to drugs or alcohol are treated by the Substance Abuse, Treatment, Education & Prevention Program (STEPP) , which provides high-risk obstetrics care, treatment and counseling. Most patients in this clinic have opiate addictions and participate in a treatment program as they work toward recovery. Learn more.
Additional Screenings and Diagnostic Procedures
— Available to women experiencing high-risk pregnancies, as well as to those with a routine pregnancy who wish to learn more about their baby’s development. The information gathered from these screenings and procedures can both ease concerns and contribute to a plan of action should an abnormality be found. Learn more.
