Most of the time, having a baby goes according to plan. For those rare times when issues arise, Yale’s Dr. Katherine Kohari is there to step in. Dr. Kohari specializes in high-risk pregnancies with complications that threaten the well-being of mother, baby, or both. “I enjoy helping mothers navigate through the exciting, yet complex, parts of pregnancy and childbirth,” she says.

Kohari joined the Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine Department’s Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in 2014. In 2007, she received her MD from New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York, where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. Dr. Kohari furthered her training with an Ob/Gyn residency and a Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.

As part of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine group, Kohari sees patients both in New Haven and at a new satellite offices in Westport and Stamford, Connecticut. These offices were opened to enable women in the Fairfield County area to see Yale physicians much closer to home. Dr. Kohari’s practice employs the latest 2D and 3D ultrasound technology to maximize early and accurate diagnoses. She also performs diagnostic procedures such as CVS and amniocentesis. “If we diagnose an abnormality in utero, we can discuss a care plan prior to delivery; the obstetrician, pediatrician and pediatric subspecialist work together to organize timing of delivery, mode of delivery and where the physical delivery should happen,” she explains.

Dr. Kohari is a member of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the New Haven Obstetrical Society.
