When the baby you're carrying faces critical health challenges, we understand that nothing matters more to you than finding exceptional care to evaluate and manage their condition. At the University of Chicago Fetal and Neonatal Care Center, we specialize in complex care for fetal and neonatal conditions. We're ready to help you and your baby, from the day you begin your diagnostic tests to the day you deliver — and beyond.

Our team of specialists will evaluate and diagnose your baby's health condition, counsel you about your options, and provide a management plan including medical and surgical options. Your plan is based on your unique health needs and the combined expertise of specialists in high-risk pregnancy care and pediatrics, including pediatric surgeons and neonatologists. 

Highest Level of Complex Fetal and Newborn Care

We recognize how stressful a pregnancy journey can be — particularly, when uncertainty is involved. Our team provides personalized attention to ensure that you understand your care plan every step along the way.

Grounded in a longstanding tradition of pioneering medical and research breakthroughs, our approach to care includes:
  • A dedicated coordinator to streamline appointments and communication with your care team
  • Important evaluations and procedures conveniently scheduled on the same day as your first appointment
  • A team of pediatric experts — including surgeons and other specialists — collaborating on a personalized care plan specific to your baby's diagnosis
  • Exceptional high-risk prenatal care close to home, including office locations in the city and suburbs of Chicago, as well as Northwest Indiana
  • Streamlined transitions to neonatal care in our Level IV NICU, just steps away from the Family Birth Center

Leading up to delivery, you and your family will participate in a meeting with all specialists involved in your care to review your plan and answer any questions.
