Cincinnati Children’s offers preterm birth prevention consultations in the Familial Preterm Birth Program. We will provide a one-time comprehensive outpatient consultation to women at high risk of preterm birth before becoming pregnant or early in pregnancy (less than 24 weeks).
Our primary focus is to see women with a significant genetic influence to their preterm birth risk, such as women with a prior preterm birth or a history of preterm birth in close family members. We are especially interested in working with women who have experienced a preterm birth despite using currently available preventive measures.
For optimal planning to prevent subsequent preterm birth, we encourage women who have experienced a prior spontaneous preterm birth − less than 37 weeks − to schedule a preconception consult in our clinic.
In addition, women who are currently pregnant and at high risk of spontaneous preterm birth are welcome to be referred for consultation.
We will perform or provide:
Patients will be counseled on their specific risk factors as well as new preventative strategies with recommendations provided to families and their obstetric providers.

The clinic will take place the first Monday morning of each month for a half day in the Cincinnati Fetal Center space on the Cincinnati Children’s main campus.
