Nemours Children’s fetal heart specialists give babies born with heart conditions the best possible chance of survival, and quality of life. From before birth through delivery and beyond, you get complete care from a team of fetal cardiologists, coordinators, psychologists, maternal fetal medicine experts, obstetricians, perinatologists, surgeons and many others.
Kids born with heart conditions do better with early and correct diagnosis, and appropriate treatment planning. Nemours offers highly accurate diagnostics using fetal echocardiograms, fetal MRI and other tests as early as 12 weeks in pregnancy in some cases. If we find something, our team coordinates care for after delivery.
Our specialists are nationally recognized for their expertise in perinatal cardiology and are part of award-winning children’s heart centers in Delaware and Florida. We partner closely with our fetal medicine team and highly skilled advanced practice providers and nurses to care for you and your baby. You may even deliver at our children’s hospital in Delaware.
Nemours delivers excellence in all we do. We participate in national networks that measure quality and diagnostic accuracy. Our outcomes are among the best. We’re also involved in research with multiple medical institutions to improve care for newborns everywhere.
