Fetal Diagnosis and Care
Your unborn child is our priority
Sometimes babies need extra care prior to birth. Woman’s provides the most advanced diagnosis and fetal intervention available. Our extensive medical staff includes fetal and pediatric surgeons, maternal fetal medicine specialists and specialized coordinators.

We know how important your unborn child is and how quickly conditions can change. Woman’s has physician’s on-call 24-7 to discuss diagnoses and care plans with referring doctors. With state-of-the-art care, right here at home, we are prepared for surgical or medical intervention 7 days a week, year-round.
Fetal interventions, including fetal surgery, are performed in our OB operating room.
The Woman’s NICU features all private family rooms to give families the space and opportunity to spend time with their baby.
