Women with pregnancy complications, or medical conditions that put them at risk of pregnancy complications, often have to travel great distances to see a MFM specialist.

Referring physicians and patients can decide to use Mount Carmel's MFM telemedicine services, rather than an in-person consultation in Columbus, if needed.

Mount Carmel MFM specialists can:

  • Collaborate with obstetricians and primary care physicians of at-risk, high-risk, or complicated pregnancy patients, before and during pregnancy
  • Provide consultations
  • Offer patient management recommendations
  • Triage patients to telemedicine consultation, if appropriate, based on their condition
