Cook Children's Fetal Center
Pregnancy can be an amazing experience, but it can also be overwhelming at times. Learning that your unborn baby may have a medical condition can be overwhelming. Our Fetal Center is here to help.
If a fetal anomaly is suspected by an obstetrician or maternal fetal medicine specialist, our Fetal Center will work together with you and your physician to provide diagnostics, delivery planning and medical interventions for your baby once born. Referring providers and their patient families have access to a multidisciplinary team of specialists, all in one location. And, of course, you’ll have access to amazing support every step of the way.
Cook Children's amazing technology allows doctors to safely monitor your baby while you are pregnant.
Fetal Echocardiograpy (ECHO)
One in every 100 babies is born with congenital heart disease, making it the number one disorder in newborns. Cook Children's fetal echocardiography (fetal ECHO) program specializes in the diagnosis and treatment planning of congenital heart conditions during pregnancy through ultrasound technology.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
An MRI is a very safe advanced imaging technique that uses no radiation and is completely noninvasive, so it reduces stress on our patients. Yet, the powerful magnet and highly optimized MRI software enable us to capture images in great detail.
