New Zealand Maternal Fetal Medicine Network (NZMFMN) - Christchurch
Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) is an Obstetric subspecialty and our service provides maternity care for women with complex medical conditions, either due to a maternal condition or a fetal abnormality. Our Women’s Outpatients department provides information, assessment, diagnosis and pregnancy management which includes fetal procedures and or therapies when indicated.
We accept referrals from LMC’s, GP’s and or consultants within the Canterbury and West Coast DHB catchment area. All other South Island referrals must come via a Consultant Obstetrician to activate the referring DHB process and enable ongoing appropriate care.
