The Mothers Center offers the unique resources and expertise necessary to provide comprehensive antenatal care to mothers with chronic or acute medical or surgical complications.

Pregnancy is an exciting time in a woman’s life, but it can also be one filled with uncertainty and anxiety. For women with chronic medical conditions, pregnancy may pose even more challenges. The Mothers Center offers the unique resources and expertise necessary to provide comprehensive antenatal care to mothers with chronic or acute medical or surgical complications.

Our Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) experts and other specialists work together at the Mothers Center to develop customized treatment plans that meet each patient’s unique needs. All of our patients have access to health care professionals throughout NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. The Mothers Center serves as the hub for this collaboration by:

  • Coordinating appointments with specialists
  • Providing counseling
  • Ensuring that patients receive the best care

The Mothers Center serves as a national model for the care of high-risk pregnant women by providing comprehensive coordinated care. As women with complex medical conditions become pregnant at a higher rate, it is important to have a multidisciplinary team to care for them both preconceptionally, through pregnancy, and beyond. Our team is also conducting research that will contribute to improved care and education outside of the institution.

The Mothers Center is at the forefront of pregnancy care in New York, and our goal is to make pregnancy safe for every mother and child.
