Comprehensive care for complex pregnancies and fetal anomalies

Boston Children’s Maternal Fetal Care Center, in affiliation with Brigham and Women’s Hospital, provides the most advanced diagnostics and surgical and medical treatments and counseling for pregnant persons with confirmed or suspected congenital anomalies of the fetus. In addition to our colleagues at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, we work closely with maternal-fetal specialists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Tufts Medical Center.

Why choose the Maternal Fetal Care Center

We are proud to be housed within the #1 pediatric hospital in the country with access to leading experts in a variety of specialties.

Our Fetal Cardiology Program is dedicated to in utero care that works to reduce potentially fatal outcomes for infants with congenital heart disease. We performed the earliest successful fetal cardiac intervention in 2001, paving the way for a robust program.
