Fetal Care Center

The Cincinnati Children's Fetal Care Center—one of the few comprehensive fetal care centers worldwide—offers a unique approach to treating complex and rare fetal conditions. Our team of specialists from Cincinnati Children’s, TriHealth and the University of Cincinnati Medical Center provide the multidisciplinary, collaborative care families need in one location.

Expert Care for Complex Fetal Conditions

Since 2004, we’ve evaluated and cared for over 8,700 women with high-risk pregnancies.

By working together, our experts in maternal-fetal medicine, fetal imaging, fetal surgery and neonatology give our patients seamless access to care every step of the way.

From prenatal diagnosis and fetal treatment to delivery to postnatal care and long-term follow-up, we can frequently offer the most sophisticated, effective therapies that may improve outcomes and quality of life.

Why Choose the Fetal Care Center

Our Center is distinctly different from other fetal care clinics. Families come to us for continuity of care that begins with prenatal counseling and continues well after their child is born.
