As a part of the Perinatal Institute at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Diagnostic Treatment and Research Center (MFM) serves women who are affected by high-risk pregnancies. MFM is a hospital-based ambulatory patient care program that uses a multi-disciplinary team approach to provide comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, and management of high-risk, complicated pregnancies within a single family-oriented center. This means experts in radiology, cardiology, genetics, neonatology, and other pediatric specialties are all joining together to deliver the best outcomes for mother and baby.

In addition, the MFM Center is committed to conducting multidisciplinary perinatal research for the prevention of premature birth, including representation from obstetrics, neonatology, perinatal biology, public health, nursing, and pharmacy.
