Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) is a branch of Women’s Health which includes high-risk pregnancy where the mother or baby or both has a problem. For most women the expectation is that pregnancy will be a happy time without problems and most will not need MFM services. However for the women who do these services are provided throughout New Zealand.
