Comprehensive prenatal care has become the hallmark of modern obstetrical practice. Awareness by both physicians and patients that such care is necessary for satisfactory perinatal outcome has led to the establishment of an obstetrical subspecialty, Maternal Fetal Medicine, to provide a higher level of prenatal care and to increase our knowledge of perinatal events. Many of the management techniques currently being used for high-risk pregnancies can be readily applied to the routine obstetrical population. The additional physician time and laboratory tests required are minimal, and the early identification and prevention of perinatal complications will eliminate the need for “crisis” medicine.
