Fetal Cardiology

Featured Image

Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect in children, affecting nearly 1 in every 100 newborns in the U.S. If your unborn baby is diagnosed with a congenital heart condition, our specially trained pediatric cardiologists will work closely with your family to improve outcomes by creating a personalized, prenatal plan of care

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.

We provide advanced diagnostics and management of congenital heart disease in unborn babies. Our services include fetal echocardiography, which allows our pediatric cardiologists to identify many heart abnormalities as early as the 12th week of pregnancy in some cases.
