The Center for Prenatal Diagnosis at St.Vincent Women's Hospital specializes in evaluating and consulting with mothers considered to be high-risk.
We offer routine and targeted ultrasound examinations, genetic counseling, prenatal screening, and fetal diagnostic testing. The Center for Prenatal Diagnosis offers consultation and diagnosis of complicated pregnancies in addition to complete pregnancy care. In many situations, delivery and the majority of pregnancy care remains with your primary obstetric care provider.
