Support Team and Additional Services
We understand that this can be a difficult time and are here to support you. Our fetal medicine nurse coordinator is available to you to call with questions and concerns. She will also coordinate your appointments at Nationwide Children’s so you will visit all necessary specialists in one day.
To help prepare you for the birth and care of your baby, the nurse coordinator will arrange a tour of our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) before your baby’s birth. We will also make sure you go home with literature and educational resources to help you understand your care and your baby’s diagnosis.
