A Look at the Delaware Center for Maternal and Fetal Medicine of Christiana Care, by Dr. Philip Shlossman

The Delaware Center for Maternal and Fetal Medicine of Christiana Care, Inc. provides top-quality care to pregnant mothers and their babies. With an expert team of perinatologists, the two facilities that comprise this entity understand many of the issues that can occur due to or during childbirth. Specialists also assist during high-risk pregnancies caused by chronic illness, mothers being over 35 years of age, prior pregnancy losses, and the existence of diabetes.

Featuring state-of-the-art equipment, these Newark-based clinics, part of the Christiana Care Health System, also evaluate the baby while the infant is in utero. Using basic and targeted ultrasounds, duplex Dopplers, contraction stress tests, and other devices, the professionals at the Delaware Center can recognize growth and structural conditions and make treatment recommendations to the parents. Additionally, the center offers genetic counseling and first-trimester screenings.
