Prenatal Pediatrics Program

Child listens to mom's belly for baby's heartbeat

The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Prenatal Pediatrics Program provides compassionate, multidisciplinary care for pregnant women whose fetuses have been diagnosed with an anomaly. Our experts are at the forefront of fetal diagnosis and therapy. We offer treatment in the womb and participate in research to find the next revolutionary fetal therapy.

Your baby’s condition and ongoing treatment will be communicated across disciplines from the moment of diagnosis. Our approach allows for an unprecedented level of seamless and thoughtful care, from diagnosis in the womb to the delivery room, the neonatal intensive care unit, our state-of-the-art pediatric center and beyond.

We are members of the North American Fetal Therapy Network and participate in multiple single center and multicenter trials.

Our unparalleled level of fetal care is the result of close collaboration with:
