Sometimes, heart defects can be discovered before your baby is even born. If your ob/gyn or maternal-fetal medicine specialist detects any possible issue with your baby's heart (usually at a routine ultrasound), he or she will coordinate a consultation with one of our fetal cardiologists. The fetal cardiologist specializes in diagnosis of heart defects in the unborn baby.
During a consultation, a detailed ultrasound focusing on the baby’s heart is performed. If your baby is diagnosed with a heart defect, the experts in the Congenital Heart Center partner with other specialties to plan and coordinate high-quality care for you and your baby.
