Our team combines fetal medicine physicians, sonographers and a variety of medical specialties such as cardiology and endocrinology to provide comprehensive care for mothers and babies with unique or complex challenges. We work closely with your obstetrician to address potential concerns early on and personalize your prenatal care to ensure the best possible pregnancy journey.

Fetal Growth Scan / Well Being Scan (28-34 Weeks)
Also called a 3rd Trimester Scan, this ultrasound scan provides useful insight into the growth and wellbeing of your baby.
Fetal Echo Scan / Fetal echocardiography
This specialized ultrasound focuses on the fetal heart, assessing its structure and function for any potential abnormalities.
