At the Colorado Fetal Care Center, we offer the full spectrum of maternal, fetal, neonatal and pediatric subspecialty care. That means we're able to provide comprehensive, world-class testing, diagnosis, treatment and care for unborn babies and moms-to-be.
We believe you and your baby deserve the best possible care as you navigate your high-risk pregnancy. That's why we're pioneering procedures and offering personalized treatments for every family entrusted to our care.
In fact, we're one of the few centers participating in a groundbreaking consortium where we're leading the way in finding solutions for patients with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), a complex form of congenital heart disease.
The Colorado Fetal Care Center is also the only fetal center in the country to receive the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology's (SOAP) Center of Excellence designation. This is awarded to institutions that demonstrate excellence and safety in obstetric anesthesiology in their current practice, ongoing improvement and education.
Families from around the country, and even the world, seek our expertise in congenital conditions and fetal anomalies. We offer the most thorough, state-of-the-art testing and counseling available – and we do it in one day, in one location. This ensures that moms and babies receive the most advanced care before, during and after pregnancy.
Our family-centered fetal care center makes difficult diagnoses and complicated pregnancies easier on mom, baby and the whole family.
You'll meet with every provider on your care team on day one, so they'll know all the details of your case. And this same team will be with you every step of the way.
Your first appointment at the Colorado Fetal Care Center will include a visit with your entire care team, which may include:
By involving every specialist who may be involved in your baby's care from the very start, we're able to build a close relationship with your family, hold your hand through tests and treatments, and surround you with the same faces every day, so that things seem a little less scary.
And we work in tandem with your primary OB or maternal fetal medicine doctor. Throughout your pregnancy, we'll regularly communicate with them, sharing test results and our recommendations, ensuring everyone is on the same page.
From your very first visit to the Colorado Fetal Care Center, we aim to:

We know you're eager to meet and bond with your new baby, which is why we've centralized the care you receive before, during and after birth.
Our space is designed so that babies with complex needs can receive immediate care at birth and mothers can stay close to their babies during this stressful time. Our fetal care center has dedicated rooms for:
Our Maternal Fetal Care Unit (MFCU) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are right down the hall from each other, and the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) is just a floor away, so you can visit your newborn and play an active role in their care and recovery while you both recuperate.
And if your baby is transferred here from another hospital after delivery, you can be transported as well to recover in our maternal unit, just steps away from your child.
