Background

Dr. Julie Moldenhauer is an Attending Physician at the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), and Medical Director of the Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit. Her clinical focus is in prenatal diagnosis and fetal therapy. She cares for mothers carrying babies with fetal anomalies that place both mother and baby at high risk.

One of Dr. Moldenhauer’s research interests lies in improving the prenatal management of gastroschisis, a defect that causes the fetal intestines to extend into the amniotic fluid through an opening in the abdominal wall. Dr. Moldenhauer also has a particular interest in outcomes after open fetal surgery and EXIT procedures, examining how fetal conditions and their treatment can place mothers at increased risk for complications. She believes that with a better understanding of the interrelation of mother and baby, we can improve the outcome for both.

Before joining CHOP in 2009, Dr. Moldenhauer was the Director of Reproductive Genetics in the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine at the University of North Carolina. Her extensive background in reproductive genetics gives her unique insight into the practice of prenatal diagnosis.

“I tell every patient that our job is to teach them everything they need to know about their baby’s condition. We need to give them the tools to help them feel comfortable making the best care decisions possible,” Dr. Moldenhauer says. “I speak to patients and families the way I would want to be spoken to myself — I am a mom, too.”

Dr. Moldenhauer has great compassion for her patients and their families, and is interested in how a prenatal diagnosis affects the mother from a psychological standpoint. “I hope to build on caring for the mental well-being of these families,” she says.

Dr. Moldenhauer is conducting further studies into post-partum depression as it relates to mothers carrying babies with fetal anomalies, with the goal of integrating that learning into patient care. “If we can define how often depression occurs and create management strategies to help women and their families, we may be able to make a significant impact.”

Dr. Moldenhauer earned her BS degree in chemistry from Hillsdale College and her medical degree from Wayne State University, both in Michigan. She performed her residencies in obstetrics and gynecology and human genetics at Wayne State University. She also completed her fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at Wayne State University . She is board certified in obstetrics & gynecology, maternal-fetal medicine and clinical genetics.

In spring 2015, Dr. Moldenhauer appeared in a three-part documentary series airing on PBS called TWICE BORN: Stories from the Special Delivery Unit. The Emmy® Award-winning documentary offered a look inside the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and its unique Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit.
