Center for Prenatal Pediatrics

At the Center for Prenatal Pediatrics, pregnancy involves caring for two patients -- mother and baby. In high-risk cases where the baby has a birth defect, the mother may need specialized adult care while the fetus requires a pediatric focus.

The Center's patients benefit from a long tradition of professional collaboration between specialty areas and physicians at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center. Through years of experience, it has become clear to our renowned experts that optimal care for these complex cases is best achieved through a systematic approach of interdisciplinary collaboration. Our Center of leading specialists provides a full range of prenatal diagnostic testing, specialist consultations, genetic counseling and pregnancy management with planning for future pediatric care.

Early diagnosis, thorough evaluation and ongoing monitoring allow both physicians and families to maximize prenatal information for the medical and emotional preparation of the birth of an affected baby. We believe this interdisciplinary and united approach increases positive pediatric outcomes. At the Center for Prenatal Pediatrics we are setting new standards of care and support for pregnant women and their families.
