University Hospital Ford Auditorium

Expectant parents all hope for an uneventful pregnancy and a healthy baby, but a wide variety of maternal conditions and fetal problems necessitate comprehensive and complex care before birth. This session will offer a review of the nature and outcomes of these conditions, and describe the role of pediatricians in perinatal anticipatory guidance and decision-making, with an exploration of the commonly encountered bioethical issues. The session will include a  review of decision making at the margin of gestational viability, common complex genetic disorders, and technology intense interventions available before, during, and after birth.
