Our Services

The Maternal Fetal Center partners with you.

We come alongside you to provide your patients with individualized care designed to meet their distinct needs – from preconception to post-delivery.

Experts at managing high-risk pregnancies, complicated deliveries and medically fragile infants, our maternal-fetal medicine specialists, together with neonatologists, other medical and surgical subspecialists, offer a complete continuum of care.

We bring the best of maternal-fetal, neonatal and pediatric medicine together in one place.

Ranked one of the best in neonatology by U.S. News & World Report, our neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) at Valley Children’s provide 24-hour coverage by board-certified neonatologists, with consultations from newborn care subspecialists.

No other program in Central California can provide you with such a comprehensive plan of care for both maternal-fetal and neonate implications.
