The UF College of Medicine-Jacksonville Division of Maternal and Fetal Medicine (MFM) is accountable for development and coordination of the perinatal services across Northeast Florida and South Georgia. The primary perinatal center is at UF Health Jacksonville (outpatient and inpatient), which is one of 11 designated Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Centers (RPICC) in the State of Florida. The secondary center is at UF Southside Women’s Health Specialist at Emerson.

Our perinatal center provides comprehensive obstetric ultrasound, prenatal diagnosis, genetic and perinatal consultation, perinatal HIV prevention, fetal health monitoring and testing, and the resources of an academic medical center. Our board-certified MFM specialists have the expertise to provide the special care your pregnancy may require, or to provide guidance to your primary care obstetrical provider. Our staff includes registered diagnostic medical ultrasonographers (RDMS), a genetic counselor, certified nurse midwives, perinatal nurse coordinator, and nurses.

The physicians in our division provide direct patient care and prenatal diagnosis at Care Center for Women at UF Health Jacksonville, and prenatal diagnosis at UF Southside Women’s Health Specialists. We also supervise the care provided by the residents and certified nurse midwives at the Care Center for Women. We provide consultative services (preconception and prenatal), ultrasound, and genetic counseling to healthcare providers and patients in North Florida and South Georgia – resource for private practitioners, the healthcare providers at the health department clinics (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, and St. Johns counties), Naval Air Station Jacksonville hospital and Mayport branch clinic.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality health care to all women. Through the collaborative efforts of an integrated network of multidisciplinary providers that includes physicians, certified nurse midwives, Healthy Start personnel, nutritionists, health educator, and pharmacists, our comprehensive services are designed to meet the perinatal health care needs of our patients.
