Tests & Treatments

  • Amniocentesis
    Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists offer a variety of prenatal screening options, including amniocentesis, to help you make informed decisions about your pregnancy.

  • Chorionic Villus Sampling
    If you and your obstetrician are concerned about genetic conditions being passed through to your unborn child, this test can provide the genetic diagnostic information early in your pregnancy.

  • Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring
    During your pregnancy, you will periodically undergo ultrasound testing to ensure your unborn child is developing normally and that the heart is strong.

  • Ultrasound
    An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, including the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver.
