The Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is an internationally recognized leader in fetal surgery and fetal care. We offer highly specialized care to mothers carrying a fetus with a known birth defect that requires treatment before or after birth. We are also home to the Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit, the world's first birthing unit for expectant parents of babies with a known birth defect.
