Spectrum Health is creating a new program, aimed to help mothers-to-be with high-risk pregnancies. The new Fetal Care Center will join expert forces with maternal-fetal medicine specialists and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital experts with vast experience in a broad range of complex conditions to guide patients in prenatal management from diagnosis through delivery and beyond.

Dr. Vivian Romero, from Spectrum Health's Maternal Fetal Medicine and Dr. Claudia Nader, a Spectrum Health neonatologist stopped by to talk about what the new Fetal Care Center has to offer.

The Fetal Care Center provides seamless care to women going through a high-risk pregnancy. Nurses will navigate these women through their journey with personalized care and flexible scheduling, making life easier for expectant mothers.
