FETAL CARE / FEATURE

Leverage wide-ranging expertise

Over the years, Children's Minnesota has learned it takes a village to launch and maintain a successful fetal care program.
The breadth and depth of skill within the clinical care team
is important-from physicians and care coordinators to genetic counselors. The original MWFCC team members trained
in Belgium and subsequently drew on expertise from The
University of Texas at Houston and University of California,
San Francisco, where fetal care techniques have been pioneered. For the most complex cases, the team uses the critical
care simulation room and the fetal operating room to simulate
a case and clarify the roles for every team member.
Philanthropy has been an important component of MWFCC's
development. With the support of donors, the center recruited
the care team, created a clinic space and built an integrated
operating room where the team performs complex procedures
and conducts training. The organization will continue to seek
funding to help in the development of interventions and research in congenital lung malformations, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, gastroschisis and single ventricle cardiac disease.

Partnering for better outcomes

Fetal care services for high-risk pregnancies and unborn
babies with fetal conditions are the frontier for improving a child's health into adulthood. By implementing fetal
care programs, children's hospitals are advancing care for
many conditions and patient populations. This increases
the focus on improving the health care experience-and
outcomes-for patients and families. Hospitals that implement a fetal care strategy can serve many interests.
