North American Society of Obstetric Medicine
The goals of our society are to promote and support research collaboration, communication, and teaching concerning the medical care of pregnant women.
This joint Canadian and U.S. society’s members now include general internists, maternal fetal medicine physicians, anesthesiologists, neonatologists, general obstetricians, family doctors, and other specialists interested in the management of medical complications in pregnancy.
Obstetric Medicine is a relatively new sub-specialty providing comprehensive care to women with medical conditions presenting before or during pregnancy and the immediate postpartum period.Learn more about Membership
