While it may be frightening to learn your unborn child has a heart defect, with early detection, most children with heart problems can enjoy happy and healthy futures.
Akron Children's Heart Center offers a range of maternal-fetal cardiology services, including fetal echocardiography, which allows our cardiologists to identify many heart abnormalities as early as the 12th or 20th week of pregnancy.
Through early fetal diagnosis, we are able to work with the family, doctors and other caregivers to create a plan of care before birth, improving patient outcomes.
