Get to know Maternal-Fetal Medicine Physician Dr. Valeria M. Di Stefano, who serves patients in Neptune City, New Jersey.

Dr. DiStefano is a remarkable maternal-fetal medicine physician practicing at Hackensack Meridian Medical Group, an integral part of Hackensack Meridian Health, in Neptune City, NJ. Maternal-fetal medicine subspecialists are high-risk pregnancy experts. They care for women who face unexpected problems that develop during pregnancy, such as early labor, bleeding, or high blood pressure. 

According to the website of Hackensack Meridian Health, “We believe Hackensack Meridian Health will achieve all of this through our streamlined, expanded network of clinically excellent care. Our combined organization will have 17 hospitals and more than 500 ambulatory care centers, fitness and wellness centers, home health services, rehab centers, and skilled nursing centers spanning from Bergen to Atlantic counties.” 

A 2007-graduate of the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science in North Chicago, IL, Dr. DiStefano conducted her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital – Rutgers University in Newark, NJ (2007-2011). She then pursued advanced training via a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at the same educational venue (2011-2014). 

Following the completion of her training, the doctor attained board certification in obstetrics and gynecology and the subspecialty of maternal-fetal medicine through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology is a non-profit organization that provides board certification for practicing obstetricians and gynecologists in the United States and Canada. It was founded in 1927 and is based in Dallas, Texas.

Dr. DiStefano’s hospital affiliations include several Meridian Health System facilities, such as Hackensack Medical Center, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Ocean Medical Center, Riverview Medical Center, Southern Ocean Medical Center, and Raritan Bay Medical Center.

Maternal–fetal medicine, also known as perinatology, is a branch of medicine that focuses on managing health concerns of the mother and fetus prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy. Maternal–fetal medicine specialists are physicians who subspecialize within the field of obstetrics.

On a more personal note, Dr. DiStefano speaks both English and Italian.
