Cleveland Clinic has established the Fetal Care Center to help mothers achieve the best possible outcome when a pregnancy is complicated by a maternal, fetal or obstetric disorder. Staff view the fetus as a patient, while respecting the health and well-being of the mother, which always remains the primary objective. We serve Cleveland Clinic obstetric patients from Hillcrest Hospital, Marymount Hospital, Fairview Hospital and our Family Health and Surgery Centers, as well as mothers referred by obstetric providers outside the healthcare system. When fetal anomalies (birth defects) are detected, we offer interdisciplinary diagnosis, counseling and treatment options at our children’s hospital.

Our program affords tremendous flexibility for the referring physician and expectant mother. For more straightforward problems, our center can provide definitive diagnosis and, in some instances, in utero intervention. The patient can then be referred back to her primary obstetrician for prenatal follow-up and delivery. For more complex problems, we offer longitudinal, coordinated care provided by a core team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, pediatric surgeons, pediatric radiologists, pediatric cardiologists and a Fetal Care Nurse Coordinator. If needed, our program streamlines access to virtually any maternal or pediatric subspecialist who may be required, such as pediatric anesthesiologists and pediatric congenital heart surgeons. Similarly, when there is a maternal health concern, we work closely with specialists throughout our healthcare system to optimize outcomes for both the mother and her fetus.
