Multi-Fetal Pregnancy Program

Why is a special program for multiples necessary?
Pregnancies involving multiple babies have an increased risk for both mother and babies. Whether you are carrying twins, triplets or more, there are potential risks that need to be reviewed by a specialist. Our team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists work with doctors from more than 70 pediatric disciplines to diagnose and treat the mother and babies.
Early diagnosis of complications from a pregnancy of multiples may allow for treatment prior to birth. If difficulties at the time of birth are suspected, or if surgery is anticipated soon after birth, advance planning can be coordinated.
Critically ill babies have access to the state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Children's Hospital. The only level IV NICU in the state, our 43-bed facility cares for more than 700 neonates each year.
A specialized nurse care coordinator provides the family additional information and support prior to the baby's birth.
Fetal Concerns Center of Wisconsin accepts patient self-referrals as well as those from physicians. For more information or to make an appointment, call:
