Our experienced team of physicians provides high-quality, state-of-the-art care for you and your baby. If you have a high-risk condition that makes your pregnancy complex, or recently learned your baby has a diagnosis that requires special care, our specialized team is ready to meet your needs. We are located at the NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns.

You may consider a consultation at the Fetal Care Center for one of the disorders for:

  • Prenatal diagnosis of genetic disease
  • Fetal conditions that may lead to a premature birth (such as twins or triplets or intrauterine growth restriction)

A Team of Experts

Our multidisciplinary team includes neonatologists (doctors with expertise caring for newborns with birth defects or complications associated with prematurity), maternal-fetal medicine specialists (obstetrician/gynecologists with additional training in maternal and fetal complications of pregnancy), and board-certified pediatric specialists, subspecialists, and pediatric surgeons.

Treatment and Care

Advanced Imaging

We have state-of-the-art MRI capabilities to diagnosis and clarify complex conditions and help us determine the most appropriate treatments.

Delivering Your Baby

Many prenatal conditions do not require you to transfer your prenatal care to our center If you are able to deliver in your obstetrician’s hospital, we will partner with your physician/provider about the care we are providing to you. If you do need to transfer your prenatal care to our center, however, we will connect you with one of our MFM specialists to oversee your care.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Our hospital has an onsite neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), offering services for newborns in need of specialized care and staffed by highly trained neonatologists, surgeons, nurses, and nurse practitioners. We strive to provide the information you need to make informed diagnostic and treatment decisions. If you wish, you can also tour our NICU in preparation for your baby’s stay.

Expertise in Newborn Surgery

Should your baby require surgery shortly after birth, our pediatric surgeons and surgical subspecialists are the strongest in the area. Whenever possible, we perform surgery using minimally invasive techniques (such as laparoscopy and thoracoscopy), resulting in smaller incisions, less discomfort, and a faster recovery for your baby than open surgery. Education and Guidance We strive to provide the information you need to make informed diagnostic and treatment decisions. If you wish, you can also tour our NICU in preparation for your baby’s stay.
