Planning Your Baby’s Care

Our team will work with your chosen obstetrician (OB), maternal fetal medicine (MFM) provider and other specialists to plan your baby’s care before they are born and prepare for their care in the NICU.

During your pregnancy, you can meet ─ one on one ─ with our experts to discuss your baby’s delivery and plan of care. We will develop a personalized plan that will ensure both you and your baby’s needs are met. This may include consultation with other Phoenix Children’s nationally-ranked pediatric specialists like our fetal cardiologists or fetal imaging team or others.
