The decision to terminate a planned or wanted pregnancy due to a fetal anomaly or fetal demise can be difficult and heart wrenching. Our experienced medical and support staff are committed to guiding women and families through this process. Many NJ Ob-gyn physicians and genetic counselors have entrusted their patients with fetal abnormalities to Metropolitan Medical Associates for many years.
