About me

Pronouns: I do not use a pronoun

Dr. Patricia Robertson is a perinatologist, an obstetrician who specializes in high-risk pregnancy. She also is a member of the UCSF Fetal Treatment Center. Her special interests include preventing preterm birth and lesbian health issues.

Robertson received her undergraduate degree in biological sciences at Mount Holyoke College. She earned her medical degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, then completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UCSF. After five years in private practice in Southern California, she returned to UCSF as a member of the faculty and completed a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine.

Robertson wrote The Premature Labor Handbook: Successfully Sustaining Your High-Risk Pregnancy, the first book to specifically and comprehensively address preterm labor and the related issues confronting women, their partners and their families.
