At The Fetal Center, the high level of care provided is centered on the long-term health of patients. The Fetal Center’s comprehensive approach combines advanced treatment options with a coordinated plan of care for both mother and baby from prenatal diagnosis through post-delivery.

The Fetal Center Follow-Up Program is a unique component of the full range of services offered at The Fetal Center. The affiliated, multidisciplinary team includes a dedicated nurse coordinator that primarily focuses on following the baby’s plan of care before delivery and beyond the family’s discharge from the hospital. The follow-up nurse coordinator works with the mother, delivering physician, pediatrician and any specialists needed to ensure seamless coordination throughout the care process.
