Fetal Medicine Institute

Children’s National Health System has an extensive and distinguished history in fetal medicine. The Fetal Medicine Institute unites the expertise of specialists from several of Children’s programs that have existed across generations, caring for expectant mothers and babies before they are even born.

With our expanded services, we are able to reach more families facing a high-risk pregnancy and ensure continuity of care from a diagnosis confirmation into postnatal life. We'd like to welcome you to learn about our programs and the Institute’s outstanding and dedicated staff.

Our Team

Families benefit from Children’s all-embracing support network, which attends to the fetus and parents throughout the pregnancy. Our Institute is made up of more than 50 specialists from a wide range of disciplines involved in maternal, fetal, neonatal, and pediatric medicine.

Our team includes world-recognized experts in the diagnosing of fetal anomalies, counseling for treatment options, and transitional care. Fetal Subspecialties affiliated with our Institute include:

Advanced and Comprehensive Care

Research indicates that early life events to which a fetus is exposed during the transition from pregnancy through birth and into the newborn period, can contribute to conditions that impact the entire lifespan.

When a fetal abnormality is suspected or detected by your Obstetrician or a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist, a referral is often made to our center for advanced imaging (MRI, Ultrasound, Echocardiography) and consultation with any specialist from any division at Children’s National. To learn more about the related tests and procedures, we encourage you to read What to Expect, a important resource for parents.

Additional specialized programs associated with the Division include: Back to top
