The Maternal and Fetal Medicine Service is part of the Clínic Institute of Gynecology and Obstetrics (ICGON) of the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona - BCN Natal. It is made up of a multidisciplinary team of specialists in maternal and fetal medicine, gynecologists and nurses, as well as midwives and social workers, among other specialties. These healthcare personnel accompany the mother and baby during the evolution of the different phases of pregnancy: pregestation, childbirth and postpartum.

The Service offers virtually the full range of maternal and fetal diagnostic and therapeutic tools available today to detect possible complications that the fetus may present and provide guidelines for performing an operation, if needed or desired, as early as possible.

With the aim of offering minimally medicalized, respectful and as physiological childbirth care as possible, the Hospital Childbirth Care and Respect Program, known as PART, is being followed. This program provides a birth plan that aims to involve families in decision-making in most aspects, always taking into account their needs and preferences. In short, a plan that can be taken advantage of by women with a pregnancy and childbirth risk considered to be low or medium.
