Nemours offers perinatal care, which is care immediately before and after birth. We specialize in diagnosing conditions in the womb. An early diagnosis means our team of experts can start treatment the minute your baby is born.
Our perinatologists (also known as maternal-fetal medicine specialists) will work with you and your gynecologist or obstetrician to develop a plan of care. We’ll help you know what to expect, from delivery to any procedures your baby may need in the hours or weeks after birth.
Our fetal medicine programs in Delaware and Florida offer extensive fetal testing. In Delaware, we can also deliver babies who will need immediate and complex care immediately after delivery. This happens at our hospital through a partnership with ChristianaCare.
We’re here to ensure that your baby has the best possible welcome to the world.
Our team starts to care for your baby before birth, which can make all the difference.

Prenatal tests are screening or diagnostic tests that can help identify health problems that could affect pregnant women or their unborn babies. Some of these conditions can be treated, so it's important to find them as early as possible. Learn more from the experts at Nemours KidsHealth.org.Learn More
