The Cincinnati Fetal Center, located at Cincinnati Children’s, provides the complete range of services for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies − everything from prenatal diagnosis and treatment to delivery, postnatal care and long-term follow-up.
The center’s experienced team is led by fetal surgeons and maternal-fetal medicine specialists (obstetrician / gynecologists with special training in high-risk pregnancies). Depending on the situation, other care professionals may be involved. Such specialists can include those from neonatology, genetics and cardiac surgery, among others.
Preparing for Delivery and Beyond
The Fetal Center is a collaboration among Cincinnati Children’s, Good Samaritan Hospital and University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Each is equipped with a Level III or Level IV newborn intensive care unit, where newborns can receive specialized ongoing care. The team − including specialists from the Fetal Center, maternal-fetal medicine specialists from UCMC and Good Samaritan Hospital and neonatologists from Cincinnati Children’s − collaborates to ensure that babies receive the best care possible.
