My plans for this page[edit]

I’m hoping to expand this article in the coming days (April 5th through the 8th) by:

  1. adding a lead section, picture, and info box
  2. 2. including a history of the development of this specialty
  3. 3. refining spectrum of care
  4. 4. adding relevant international organizations and common journals

In addition, I plan to increase the links to other wiki articles, and provide more external links/further reading.

I had initially planned to change the name to “perinatology”, but google ngram viewer seems to show that the term “maternal-fetal medicine” has overtaken “perinatology” in recent literature. Any feedback is more than welcome! Fairlycromulent (talk) 19:00, 1 April 2016 (UTC)fairlycromulent

Requested move 12 April 2016[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved per WP:MOS. En dash is harder for readers to type is not an issue as there will be a redirect anyway. (non admin closure) InsertCleverPhraseHere 06:50, 23 April 2016 (UTC)



Maternal-fetal medicineMaternal–fetal medicine – En dash, not hyphen 123.243.76.165 (talk) 05:26, 12 April 2016 (UTC) 123.243.76.165 (talk) 05:26, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose en dash is harder for readers to type making it harder to directly access this article. --Tom (LT) (talk) 21:31, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - from MOS:HYPHEN and MOS:DASH, I think the two terms maternal and fetal are independent of each other, and should be separated by an en-dash, not by a hyphen. Per In some cases, like diode–transistor logic, the independent status of the linked elements requires an en dash instead of a hyphen. LT910001's oppose argument is not very persuasive, as ease or otherwise of typing the name is not a factor in choosing WP:ARTICLETITLE. The current name would in any case remain as a redirect.  — Amakuru (talk) 09:15, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
