FMFIndia’s Mission
FMFIndia is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the education and promotion of Skilled Medical Professionals in the field of Fetal Medicine. It aims to address problems and improve the health of pregnancies of Indian women across all social strata. It will do this by increasing the number and availability of skilled professionals (physicians,ultra-sonographers, and other health-care workers) to all Indian women.

Obstetrician Certification’s Objectives

  • It is important that all the obstetricians are familiar with standard protocols of prenatal care, and offer them to all pregnant women.
  • The obstetricians should by the end of the programme be able to counsel the patient regarding risk for the common aneuploidies , risk for preeclampsia and prematurity, and guide further management. Only if they need diagnostic testing, or invasive procedure for one reason/other, should they feel the need refer the patient to higher centre.
  • We also need to ensure that all sonographers follow FMF protocols and that can be ensured only if Obstetricians review All images of NT scan and motivate their sonographers to get FMF accredited
  • FMF India has been organizing training and hands on workshops all over India to help sonographers become proficient in NT scans and a list of these centres will be found on the website www.fmfindia.in
