For Patients and Families

When faced with the diagnosis of a fetal condition prior to delivery, parents may be forced to make challenging and often overwhelming decisions on behalf of their children before birth. Finding physicians you can trust to care for you and your family under these unique circumstances is crucial.

The expert health care team at the Center for Fetal Therapy adopts a family-centered approach to care. We present families with a wide range of management options customized to their unique situation and provide unparalleled support services. Our care approach draws on the expertise of providers from across Johns Hopkins, including genetics, neonatology and a number of pediatric specialties.
