Advanced Fetal Care Center (BCH)

Directors: Marshall, Audrey, M.D.; Tworetzky, Wayne, M.D.

Summary:

The mission of the Advanced Fetal Care Center (AFCC) is to provide the finest diagnosis and care for a mother carrying a baby with a congenital anomaly. For these families, our center offers entry to a continuum of care and support that extends throughout childhood--from prenatal diagnosis and counseling, through treatment and long-term follow-up. On rare occasions, our team will recommend and perform intervention during fetal life. Our physicians, who represent all pediatric subspecialty areas, work with a wide range of babies with anomalies. Together, they have developed ground-breaking procedures in fetal medicine and surgery.
