Prenatal Support Services

The Center for Prenatal Evaluation and Fetal Heart Program team members have strong ties in the community, allowing good communication among local obstetricians, neonatologists and pediatricians. The team coordinates consultations with Children’s cardiac surgeons and other necessary subspecialists.

The team works closely with the family and birth hospital to plan the details of the baby’s delivery and care after delivery so that the heart abnormality does not lead to significant illness or compromise at the time of birth. If cardiac surgery is required soon after birth, arrangements can be made for the delivery to occur in a facility where the infant can be stabilized with the help of Children’s cardiologists prior to transport to Children’s. In rare cases for which severe compromise is anticipated at the time of birth, the Fetal Delivery Team can plan for a delivery at Children’s with the support of a collaborative obstetrical team. Once transported to Children’s, patients are cared for in a dedicated Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and receive individualized care from a multidisciplinary team.

An extensive support team is available, including social workers, counselors and concierge support staff to assist families with all of their needs.
