Need to see mfm: A maternal fetal medicine obstetrician is the physician you need to see. This ob/gyn is fellowship trained in pregnancy in women with significant past medical histories. Depending on what spasticity treatments you use will have an impact on pregnancy in terms of what you can and cannot take in order to have a healthy baby.
