The Fetal Cardiac Program diagnoses potentially dangerous heart conditions before babies are born. We ensure the best possible outcomes for children through careful monitoring during the pregnancy and delivery process. Families receive full support and education about the condition, treatment options, and delivery planning.
Our team strives to provide a seamless transition from our Fetal Cardiac Team to postnatal cardiology care providers after birth in the NICU, Cardiology clinic. This team includes fetal cardiologists, a dedicated fetal cardiac advanced nurse practitioner, fetal cardiac nurse coordinator, genetic counselors, social workers, palliative care team, cardiovascular surgeons, cardiac interventionalists, neonatologists, and maternal-fetal-medicine specialists.
- Fetal Echocardiogram with Fetal Cardiologist Consultation

Our clinic is located in the Fetal Health Center at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo.
