Obstetric Medicine

The Obstetric Medicine service at the RAH is a national leader in providing care for pregnant women with medical problems. We provide preconception counseling, care during pregnancy and immediate postpartum care.

The Obstetric Medicine service is a group of General Internists with expertise in dealing with medical problems in pregnancy.
We provide consultative care to:

  • pregnant women with medical problems
  • women contemplating pregnancy with medical problems

We do not provide obstetric or prenatal care.  We do not provide ongoing management of pre-existing conditions or diagnostic workup of undifferentiated symptoms or conditions outside pregnancy.
