Comprehensive heart care before birth
As one of the top-ranking pediatric cardiology and heart surgery programs in the nation, Children’s Mercy has a great team of cardiac specialists ready to answer your questions and create a care plan that’s right for your family.
Our fetal cardiologists, nurses and nurse practitioners care for families like yours every day. They are dedicated to supporting your family, whether it’s for one appointment or ongoing care.
The Fetal Cardiology Program is part of our Fetal Health Center—in fact, about one-third of all our Fetal Health Center families come for a heart condition. That means you’ll have access to any additional medical specialists your baby may need, such as maternal-fetal medicine specialists, sonographers and genetic counselors, along with support services like social work, chaplaincy and child life specialists.
