Maternal-Fetal Medicine 32 years experience
MFMs: Maternal fetal medicine specialists usually perform cvs, although there are occasional doctors of other specialties who have been trained to do the procedure. Fellows, who are still in training, may perform the procedure under the supervision of the doctor who is teaching them.
