Perhaps one of the greatest wishes for a new mother is to have a healthy baby. Sadly, that is not always the case. Babies born with complex congenital conditions often require immediate and special medical attention.
The Fetal Care Center at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in affiliation with Alegent Creighton Health is here to make sure your newborn has the best start on life possible. You will have peace of mind knowing that your baby is under the care of the most skilled doctors and staff in the region – doctors who are dedicated solely to the care of the most fragile newborns.
Our Fetal Care Center will help ensure the best outcome for you and your baby by working closely with you before, during and after delivery to provide a coordinated plan of care using the most advanced neonatal care and technology. We’re with you every step of the way, answering your questions and putting your fears at ease.
You will have access to a broad team of pediatric and maternal fetal medicine specialists specially trained to deal with high-risk fetal situations and advanced neonatal interventions. These experienced professionals include maternal fetal medicine physicians, neonatologists, pediatric specialty-trained surgeons, cardiologists, cardio-thoracic surgeons, and anesthesiologists.
In very high risk situations, expectant mothers will be able to deliver their babies in a specialized unit located steps away from Children’s Level IV Regional Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for the health and safety of you and your newborn. Welcoming a new baby into the world is a very exciting, life-changing event. At Children’s, we want to make sure it is also a safe and memorable one.
