Special Interests

Dr. Simmons assists in providing Louisiana’s most advanced diagnosis and fetal interventions.  (MFM) specialists work with obstetricians to offer complete and specialized care for a wide spectrum of pregnancy complications.

She has a special interest in the care and treatment of women with morbidly adherent placenta, also referred to as placenta accreta spectrum. This is a serious condition that occurs when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall. It requires consistent monitoring and supervision throughout pregnancy and into delivery.

She is active in several professional societies, currently a Junior Fellow with the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists. She is also a member of the Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
