Fetal Medicine

Fetal Medicine

Most pregnancies are normal without any complications. However, sometimes a mother or her unborn baby may require specialised care for various reasons. If the unborn baby has abnormalities such as gastroschisis, or the mother has medical conditions that increase the risk to the baby, such as red cell antibodies or viral infections, they may require specialised care in fatal medicine.

At BirthRight by Rainbow Hospitals, the care of your child begins from within the womb itself. In addition to providing routine Fetal Checks for all pregnant women, we also provide advanced Fetal- diagnostic and therapeutic services in the form of various treatments. We have highly experienced and renowned fetal medicine consultants and specialists, as well as other specialists such as Neonatologists, Geneticists, PediatricSurgeons, FetalCardiologists and Neurosurgeons who offer their expertise to our multidisciplinary approach.
