Our Approach
Learn more about our comprehensive and integrated approach.

Successful prenatal treatment of fetal conditions requires an accurate diagnosis, the skill to identify the most appropriate therapy for the family and the development of an individualized management plan — all the way to delivery and beyond. The Center for Fetal Therapy takes a comprehensive approach to achieve this goal in caring for patients by integrating the full spectrum of clinical and support services.

Treating Mother and Fetus

At the Center for Fetal Therapy we care for mother and fetus at every stage, from pregnancy to delivery and beyond. The world’s best fetal, maternal, neonatal and pediatric physicians call Johns Hopkins home, and they are proud to care for you and your family. Our treatment plans include fetal surgery and other prebirth interventions, specialized birth plans and customized management of the mother’s health

Continuity of Care

Treatment begins the moment a patient makes an appointment via our dedicated patient line: 410-502-6561 or our 24/7 fetal therapy hotline: 1-844-JH-FETAL (1-844-543-3825). After diagnosis, we create optimal conditions for delivery and prepare a postnatal management plan for mom and baby. Many fetal procedures we perform require short and/or long term follow-up care. As your child grows, you can have confidence in the medical team who has been with you since day one. We offer the most comprehensive and integrative care for your family in one location — The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
