Why Choose UH?

Seamless Collaboration Among Specialists

When a fetal issue is identified, our team collaborates with multiple adult and pediatric subspecialists to discuss the diagnosis and develop a coordinated plan for both before and after the baby is born.

Immediate Access to UH Rainbow’s NICU

UH MacDonald Women’s Hospital Labor & Delivery is located just steps away from the Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, giving your newborn immediate access to pediatric specialists.

Dedicated Nurse Navigator

Our team includes a nurse navigator who will help facilitate communication between you and your providers, coordinate appointments, provide patient education, and support a smooth transition to postnatal care.

State-of-the-Art Diagnosis and Management of Fetal Conditions

Doctors working at UH have pioneered in-utero diagnosis and interventions that have become standard of care in the world. Our high-risk pregnancy specialists use technology such as laser ablation in pregnancies complicated by twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and diagnosis of fetal anemia using Doppler ultrasonography.

Conditions & Treatments

Our Team
