Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Board certified maternal-fetal medicine sub-specialists have an additional two to three years training in maternal-fetal medicine (MFM). The Society's primary objectives are to promote and expand research and education in maternal-fetal medicine. Congenital heart defects, genetic disorders, preeclampsia, and complications of preterm labor and delivery are a few examples of disorders that maternal-fetal medicine sub-specialists treat.
In 2014 the organization's focus at their annual meeting was discussing ways to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.
