October 20, 2013 — At the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, more and more babies are finding hope and treatment before they are born.

Here, a multidisciplinary team dedicated to diagnosing and treating birth defects is constantly looking for new ways to treat babies before birth. That team recently gave a behind-the-scenes look at what is being done to improve treatment and develop new life-saving procedures for babies with debilitating or life-threatening birth defects.

With experts in fetal and pediatric surgery, maternal-fetal medicine and a dedicated clinical psychologist, and world-class facilities including the Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit and the Harriet and Ronald Lassin Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit, both mom and baby receive the best possible care from diagnosis through delivery and beyond.
