Fetal Care Program
Most pregnant women are familiar with the guide, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”. But what can you expect when you’re expecting multiples? Or a child with a birth defect?
When you have a high-risk pregnancy, suddenly the term “expectant parent” takes on a whole new meaning. The Ochsner team will not only help you learn what to expect; you’ll come to learn you can expect more from us.
The Fetal Care Program at Ochsner provides care for:
Ensuring a Healthy Outcome for You and Your Baby
At Ochsner, specially-trained maternal fetal medicine specialists – called perinatologists – have partnered with neonatology and pediatric surgery to make up one of the only 24/7 Fetal Therapy Teams in the Gulf South. Our talented group of dedicated professionals works tirelessly to improve all aspects of perinatal treatment.
Fetal care has evolved dramatically in the past 15 years. Many complications previously associated with a high mortality rate are now treatable. Our team is proud of the role we’ve played in improving these outcomes.
In 2013, Ochsner performed the first in-utero surgery in the Gulf South. Today, we remain the only hospital in Louisiana, Mississippi or Alabama to offer this cutting edge option to our expecting families.
