Tele-Maternal Fetal Medicine (Tele-MFM) - ROAMS

Tele-MFM services are available in Northeastern New Mexico.

Pregnant women living in rural New Mexico often face long drives for pregnancy-related medical visits. If they are facing an at-risk pregnancy they may need to frequently travel to find an OBGYN that specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM). It is not uncommon for a pregnant mom in rural New Mexico to have to drive at least 3 to 8 hours round trip to visit a MFM specialist based in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

Luckily there have been many technological advancements that allow women who are experiencing at-risk pregnancies to access specialized care without having to make the arduous and sometimes dangerous commutes. Tele-MFM services allow pregnant women to have a high quality Ultrasound and visit a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, from the office of their local OBGYN or primary care physician. This means shorter drives for appointments and it also means that mothers experiencing at-risk pregnancies have access to a wider variety of specialists.

Tele-MFM services are available from:

  • Miners Colfax Medical Center in Raton with the Pinon Perinatal MFM located in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
  • Women’s Health Institute in Taos with the Pinon Perinatal MFM located in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
