A Guiding Hand

What to Expect

When you contact the Colorado Fetal Care Center you can expect to be fully guided through your entire experience at the Center. Our Program Assistant will work with you personally to understand your transportation, accommodation and financial needs. She will coordinate your schedule with the appropriate specialty schedules. The Program Assistant will schedule all appointments in the most efficient way possible for your convenience and, most importantly, to provide the best care for you and your baby.

You will be provided with all of the information you need to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

​Your Arrival

When you arrive for your initial visit you can expect a full day of diagnostic testing and evaluation. Our Program Assistant will help guide you through each appointment and will be available as a resource to you throughout the day. Once the diagnostic testing is complete you will meet with the multidisciplinary care team which includes a pediatric fetal surgeon, a maternal-fetal medicine physician and any specialties who will be involved in the coordination of your care.

Collaboratively with you and your referring physician, the CFCC team will review fetal imaging findings, discuss their implications, and review our treatment recommendation, which will include prenatal management, the potential role of fetal intervention, our suggested delivery management, and long-term implications of the diagnosis. We will answer every question you have so you feel prepared to make informed decisions on next steps.
