Fetal Health Specialists

At The Chicago Institute for Fetal Health, our comprehensive team works together to develop the best plan for every baby. Our Fetal Health Advisory Group is a multidisciplinary group of specialists that meets regularly to discuss patient cases, develop treatment plans that incorporate all aspects of care and communicate those plans to your care providers throughout your pregnancy.

Our team also works closely with Lurie Children’s social workers and child life specialists to address the non-medical needs of our patients and families.
