The Fetal Medicine Service at Children’s Hospital ensures that newborns can be treated by subspecialists as soon as they’re born. By determining when a pregnancy may lead to higher risk factors for genetic disorders or congenital defects, we can begin consultation with specialists early on, and thanks to our highly-ranked Northern California pediatric transport services and our staff of board-certified specialists trained for neonatal intervention, we’re a leading source of fetal and neonate support
Coordinated Fetal Health Services
- The Fetal Medicine Program is designed to allow for comprehensive neonatal care, from delivery to transport to surgical intervention or other treatment plans.
- Coordination of services with your obstetrician and family doctor ensure that your child receives seamless integrated attention when it matters most.
Comprehensive Care for Neonates
- Our multidisciplinary team draws from various departments including cardiology, infectious disease, endocrinology, genetics, hematology, pulmonology, neurology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and audiology.
- Although our Pediatric Cardiology Program is the most prominent part of the Fetal Medicine Program, we treat disorders of the kidney, liver, and gastrointestinal systems as well. We're also a leading provider of breathing support, infection control, and neurological development in at-risk neonates.
