Most pregnancies go according to plan and the baby arrives healthy and strong. But if complications arise or the baby is diagnosed with certain conditions before or at birth, you want an expert team ready to provide the very best care for your precious child.

The Arizona Fetal Care Network at Phoenix Children’s Hospital is the only program in Arizona offering advanced fetal diagnosis and newborn medical and surgical intervention, all at one location. 

Our multidisciplinary team specializes in medical and surgical treatment after delivery, to correct many of the most complicated prenatal diagnoses including congenital heart defects, abdominal wall defects such as gastroschisis and omphalocele (intestines and other organs form outside the fetus) and spina bifida (abnormal development of the back bones, spinal cord, surrounding nerves, and the fluid-filled sac that surrounds the spinal cord). 

Nothing is more important than the health of your new baby. Our team of pediatric specialists will meet with you before baby arrives so you understand the diagnosis, treatment options, and short- and long-term issues. An Arizona Fetal Care Network Coordinator will help arrange your consultation appointments, offer a tour of the Phoenix Children’s Level IIIC Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and record your care plan, so when the baby arrives, there’s no question as to your wishes.
