Each woman and each pregnancy is different. UW Medicine offers a spectrum of obstetrical options to meet each woman’s personal health care needs and preferences throughout her pregnancy, whether low or high-risk.

The UW Medicine Obstetrics team is dedicated to the well being of you and your baby. UW Medicine Obstetrics providers include obstetrician-gynecologists, maternal fetal medicine specialists, midwives and family ​medicine physicians – all highly trained experts in caring for pregnant women. 

Our obstetrics team partners with many professionals – nutritionists, genetics counselors, nurses, social workers, pediatricians, and neonatologists – across the UW Medicine health system to address issues that may complicate pregnancy. Some women with high-risk pregnancies may also require and benefit from the expertise of our cardiologists, hematologists, and endocrinologists. Most importantly, we are here to serve you and build a team of experts to best care for you and your baby.
