Background

Stefanie B. Kasperski is a senior genetic counselor/fetal therapy coordinator with the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

A fetal therapy clinical coordinator is a clinician who guides families throughout their pregnancy and care, and is generally the first point of contact for a patient family who contacts the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment.

The fetal therapy coordinator team receives referrals, removes barriers to care, and minimizes the wait for a diagnostic evaluation and counseling appointment. We provide verbal, written and online resources, and may connect the patient to families that have had similar experiences. Depending on each patient’s evaluation and diagnosis, our team arranges specific counseling with maternal-fetal medicine specialists, fetal and pediatric surgeons, and other subspecialists as needed. We help guide families throughout their care, from prenatal testing and surveillance through delivery and after a baby is born, working closely with your physicians back home to coordinate ongoing care for both mother and child.
