High-quality care for at-risk pregnant women in West Texas is now available at Cook Children's Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) center in Abilene.
We have more than 20 years of experience specializing in the care and treatment of women whose pregnancies are considered high-risk because of existing conditions, family history of genetic diseases, twin, triplet, quadruplet or more pregancies, or previous complications during pregnancy. Our highly specialized team has the training and expertise to provide the very best care for mom and baby to ensure the safest possible delivery.
Upon your first visit, if a fetal anomaly is discovered, we will come up with a plan to determine exactly the right care for mom and baby. That may include coordinating care with the delivery hospital, any necessary specialists and (if their presence is necessary during birth) an MFM who delivers babies.
Cook Children's MFM team sees expectant moms if they're at risk for pregnancy-related complications including:
An MFM is an obstetrician who has received three additional years of specialized training on the assessment and management of high–risk pregnancies.
Yes, your OB and MFM work together to coordinate care for fetuses and women throughout the pregnancy.
Dr. Thigpen is a consult only MFM and does not handle deliveries. He will coordinate with your OB or an MFM that delivers concerning labor and delivery.
You should see an MFM if the fetus is at risk, or if you are at risk for pregnancy-related complications or have specialized medical concerns. Pregnant women with such risks will be refereed to an MFM by the OB.
