We know finding out your baby will have or has a birth defect or congenital anomaly can be very difficult. As a response, the newborn intensive care units at Miami Valley Hospital and Dayton Children’s Hospital came together and created the Southwest Ohio Neonatal Collaborative as a joint venture. The Fetal to Newborn Care Center makes navigating the continuum of care from fetal diagnosis through birth and beyond as seamless as possible. Learn more here.

Our expertise and experience, along with input from a referring physician, will guide the creation of an individualized care plan based on the needs of each family. This unique plan may include diagnostic tests such as ultrasound, fetal MRI and genetic testing, innovative procedures and interventions, and specialized care after birth.
Our pediatric specialists have advanced experience treating your child from diagnosis to treatment to follow-up, giving you peace of mind in knowing who is caring for your baby. And our specialized nurse navigator will guide a mother through the pregnancy assisting with all of the subspecialty appointments and tours needed at Dayton Children’s and Miami Valley Hospital. In addition, she will provide emotional support, educational materials, and be the first line contact for the families for all of their needs, and in rare cases, assist the family through the perinatal hospice path. The nurse navigator will communicate throughout the pregnancy with the referring physician.
