As a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, Emily Patel, MD, FACOG, is most inspired by the women and families she cares for. She has seen and experienced the gamut of her specialty, including the joy of bringing a rainbow baby into the world and the heart-wrenching loss of a newborn or stillborn baby.

“Having the chance to help a family through a difficult and challenging pregnancy is a privilege,” she said. “While there are many difficult days, there are also times I get to celebrate a good pregnancy outcome, and that gives me so much joy!”

She attended medical school and completed her residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She also completed a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at Duke University.
