Fetal Care Center

Yale Department of Pediatric Surgery

At the Yale Medicine Fetal Care Center—which is the only of its kind in the state and one of few in the Northeast—we provide comprehensive services to pregnant women whose babies have complex or rare fetal conditions. In addition to taking care of the mother, we treat the baby in utero and after birth.

A partnership between Yale Medicine and Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, our team of specialists spans multiple disciplines, including maternal-fetal medicine, neonataology and pediatric surgery.

Our surgeons are among the most experienced in fetal treatment and fetal surgical procedures, including noninvasive fetal anemia assessment, percutaneous umbilical blood sampling (PUBS), in utero fetal blood transfusion and such therapies as fetoscopy and fetal surgery.

We treat many conditions at the Fetal Care Center, though heart, abdominal, urologic and neurological conditions are the most common. We also have expertise in disorders that affect twins, including twin-to-twin-transfusion syndrome.
