Dr. Laura Klein grew up in the Colorado Springs area and has been practicing at Memorial Hospital since 2006. As a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, she cares for high-risk pregnant women and their infants. “I always keep in mind that I have 2 patients (or sometimes 3 or 4 in the case of a twin or triplet pregnancy!) I am honored to work with pregnant patients and their families during such an important time in their lives. Many of my patients face significant challenges during pregnancy, and I enjoy developing a plan of care with the goal of giving them the best possible outcome for both mother and baby,” she said. One of her areas of expertise is in prenatal diagnosis, including specialized fetal ultrasound with 3D and 4D, fetal echocardiography, amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling. “It is amazing that we are able to discover so much information about the health and development of an infant even before birth, and this information is critical in order to improve the health of the mother and baby.” Klein also serve as the medical director of the Memorial Star High Risk Obstetric transport team, which brings pregnant patients from throughout Southern Colorado to Memorial in order to receive the specialized care that they need. Klein’s personal interests include skiing, trail running, and spending time with her husband and three children.
