Fetal Medicine & Medical Genetics

(A step forward towards care of the unborn baby)

As our understanding of fetal environment and fetal physiology has improved the fetus is increasingly being considered an independent individual despite being inside the mother’s womb and fetal medicine speciality which addresses this “unborn patient”. Fetal medicine is relatively new and most rapidly evolving speciality.  Increasing knowledge and technological advances in prenatal screening and diagnosis have improved our capability to detect problems (like congenital malformations, genetic syndromes, metabolic disorders etc) before birth and provide therapeutic interventions wherever possible so that more and more at risk couples are able to have unaffected child. Sensitive counseling where baby is affected helps in preparation of the family to optimize the management of the pregnancy and delivery of the fetus.
