When you identify a potential fetal anomaly or concern during your patient's pregnancy, we understand how important it is to find the best possible care for your patient and her fetus(es).

At Children's Wisconsin, we are proud to offer a comprehensive fetal care center, the Fetal Concerns Center. We are a leader in maternal and fetal care, recognized for innovative treatment with exceptional outcomes, including open fetal surgery and minimally invasive fetoscopy. Our highly trained experts offer compassionate, individualized care for the entire family, including diagnosis, treatment and coordination of delivery.

The Fetal Concerns Center operates in close collaboration with Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin to deliver high-quality, comprehensive fetal care. Our providers are employed by the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Expert care for multiples and fetal heart care

Multifetal Pregnancy Management
We are one of only a few perinatal centers in the country specializing in complex complications with multiple gestations. Our team of maternal fetal medicine and pediatric specialists trained extensively with world-renowned pioneers in the study and treatment of twin-related conditions to learn the art and science of diagnosing and treating these complications.

Fetal Heart Program
Our fetal cardiologists are trained to perform and interpret prenatal cardiac ultrasounds. We utilize the most advanced ultrasound techniques to assess babies' heart problems. Our surgical outcomes are consistently ranked among the best in the country, including the best published survival rates worldwide for treating hypoplastic left heart syndrome, an uncommon and complicated congenital heart disease. We are committed to providing the best care for each patient and baby.

What we diagnose and treat

Our team of experts coordinates care for all fetal conditions, including but not limited to:

Why you should choose the Fetal Concerns Center

Specialized nurse care coordinators
Each family works with fetal nurse care coordinators to arrange medical services and provide ongoing counseling and support throughout the pregnancy.

Care for both mother and baby under one roof
Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Birth Center is located inside Children's. If neonatal intervention or surgery is anticipated, delivery at the Birth Center is recommended. Having mother and baby under one roof offers greater opportunity for breastfeeding and bonding, and allows families to meet face to face with their baby's care providers.

Referring physician involvement
We work closely with referring physicians to be sure that all aspects of each patient's care are highly coordinated and communicated. We view our relationships with referring physicians as partnerships, and we work together to ensure the best possible care for each patient, seamlessly transferring care back to the original physician whenever possible. The Fetal Concerns Center doesn't require patients to deliver their babies at our hospital, unless the diagnosis and care plan demands it. In fact, nearly 50% of our patients deliver at an outside hospital of their choice. We work directly with the patient and referring physician to determine the best care plan for each individual case.
