Fetal medicine

At Obsgyn London, our fetal medicine specialists are dedicated to providing comprehensive care and support for you and your unborn child. We understand that pregnancy can be a time of excitement and anticipation, but it may also bring concerns and uncertainties. Our team is here to ensure you receive the highest level of medical expertise and guidance throughout your fetal journey.

Our Fetal Medicine Services:

  • Advanced Ultrasound Imaging: We utilize state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to provide detailed assessments of your baby’s growth and development. Our specialists are skilled in performing early pregnancy scans, anatomical surveys, growth scans, and Doppler evaluations to ensure the well-being of your baby.
  • Prenatal Diagnosis and Counseling: In collaboration with our genetic counselors, we offer comprehensive prenatal diagnosis and counseling services. This includes advanced screening tests, such as non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) and detailed ultrasound scans, to identify potential genetic or chromosomal conditions. We provide supportive counseling to guide you through the results and offer personalized care options.
  • Fetal Therapy and Intervention: In cases where fetal abnormalities or complications arise, our team is equipped to provide specialized fetal therapies and interventions. These may include fetal blood transfusions, shunt placements, or laser surgeries to treat conditions such as twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome or fetal tumors.
  • High-Risk Pregnancy Management: For pregnancies considered high-risk due to maternal or fetal conditions, we offer specialized care and monitoring. This includes managing pre-existing maternal health issues, such as diabetes, hypertension, or autoimmune disorders, as well as fetal conditions like growth restrictions or congenital anomalies.
  • Fetal Cardiac Assessment: Our fetal medicine specialists have expertise in evaluating the fetal heart. We perform detailed echocardiography to assess the structure and function of your baby’s heart, identifying any potential cardiac abnormalities early on.
  • Cordocentesis and Fetal Blood Sampling: In certain situations, we may recommend cordocentesis (percutaneous umbilical cord blood sampling) to obtain a sample of your baby’s blood for diagnostic purposes. This procedure provides valuable information about your baby’s health and helps guide further treatment decisions.
  • Amniocentesis and CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling): We offer amniocentesis and CVS procedures for prenatal diagnosis. These procedures involve sampling amniotic fluid or placental tissue to detect chromosomal abnormalities, genetic disorders, or infectious diseases.
  • Fetal Growth Restriction and Monitoring: If your baby is showing signs of growth restriction or other concerns, we provide specialized monitoring and interventions to optimize fetal well-being. This may include serial ultrasound assessments, Doppler evaluations, and nutritional or medical interventions as needed.
  • Supportive Care and Counseling: Throughout your fetal medicine journey, we offer emotional support and counseling services. Our team understands the anxiety and stress that may accompany a high-risk pregnancy or unexpected diagnosis. We are here to provide the guidance and resources you need during this time.

From early pregnancy scans to advanced diagnostic procedures, our fetal medicine specialists will be by your side every step of the way. We understand that each pregnancy is unique, and we tailor our care to your specific needs and concerns.
