What We Do
The frustration and heartache you feel when struggling with fertility and conception can be overwhelming. From “it-worked-for-us” anecdotes from friends and family to unsolicited advice from near-strangers to conflicting internet articles, it’s hard to know what information to trust. It’s time to discover the answers and guidance you need to move forward.
At Unity Maternal Fetal Medicine, we understand how confusing and disappointing it can be to feel ready to grow your family and not know what’s preventing you from it. We want to help. Our triple board-certified physician and perinatologist with 25 years of experience will take the time to perform a 360-degree assessment of your health and any potential issues. From there, we’ll craft an individualized plan of action to guide you to the best possible outcome.
We specialize in compassionate, personalized women’s healthcare for high-risk pregnancies. Our expert team of gentle (yet honest) caregivers will educate and guide you through all aspects of preconception, conception, fetal care, and pregnancy —regardless of your health history or pregnancy risks— to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your baby.
Sometimes, pregnancy is accompanied by complications that have varied ramifications for the expectant mother or her baby. At Unity Maternal Fetal Medicine, we have experienced all imaginable pregnancy scenarios and have acquired the gentle touch necessary to guide a woman and her family through every phase of her unique pregnancy journey.

When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Heather Stanley-Christian at Unity Maternal Fetal Medicine, you should come prepared to discuss your complete health history. Dr. Stanley-Christian will review your health history with you and provide direction for your next steps. We will take the time to address all questions and concerns by taking a 360-degree assessment of your health, including a comprehensive review of your health history. Then, we’ll craft an individualized care plan to guide you to the best possible outcome. Depending on your family history and your health history, we may recommend screening tests.
Some of the health conditions that screening tests check for include genetic and chromosomal conditions (i.e., cystic fibrosis, heart defects, and sickle cell disease) and congenital disabilities, which cause problems in your baby’s overall health, how the body works, or how the body develops. If certain health conditions, genetic disorders, or congenital disabilities run in your family, and you would like to schedule fetal testing, request a consultation with Dr. Heather Stanley-Christian.

Specific genetic counseling relates to any parentally-inherited disorder that may impact the pregnancy or the future adult. Dr. Heather Stanley-Christian provides this service at Unity Maternal Fetal Medicine in Winter Garden, Florida. Not only is Dr. Stanley-Christian a board-certified OB/GYN and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, but she is also a board-certified geneticist. Many couples schedule genetic counseling with a counselor, but Dr. Stanley-Christian gives you the benefit of speaking with a medical professional who is more than a counselor.
