Unborn child genetic conditions clinic
Akron Children’s Hospital’s Fetal Treatment Center now offers a clinic day for parents-to-be who learn their unborn child has a genetic condition or birth defect and will need immediate intervention after birth and/or the care of multiple pediatric specialists.
“Our goal with this clinic is to bring the family to the hospital for a day of evaluation, diagnostic tests and consultation with all the specialists who will be involved in their child’s delivery and care,” said Dr. Melissa Mancuso, a high-risk obstetrician in Akron Children’s Maternal Fetal Medicine Center. “It’s helpful for the doctors to get together to discuss the case and reassuring for expectant parents to meet their team and learn about the plan for the rest of their pregnancy, birth and beyond.”
