Refer a Patient

Whether you are a perinatologist, OB/GYN, certified nurse midwife or a family medicine physician, when you refer a patient to Sanford Fetal Care Center we consider you a part of our team.

This includes our initial meeting with the patient, where we review our recommended approach, as well as the labor and delivery plan, which often includes the patient remaining with you for delivery. If you would like to attend this meeting but are unable to attend in person, our staff can arrange a teleconference so you are involved every step of the way. Our staff will also coordinate the forwarding of any important patient notes to you, including follow-up care notes.

Only in specific high-risk pregnancies would we recommend your patient deliver at our facilities. If you would like to participate in any procedures or the delivery, temporary privileges may be granted.

If your patient has a preexisting condition where other specialists are involved in her care, they are welcome to work with us during her pregnancy as well. We encourage the patient to keep the providers she had prior to enrolling with us and welcome them to contact our coordinators anytime they have questions about her care.

A maternal-fetal medicine specialist is available for urgent referrals, consulations, and transfers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
