Following are the services that come under advanced foetal care:

By using advanced imaging, 4-D colour vascular imaging, 3-D ultrasound, life-saving foetal therapies as early as possible, and foetal magnetic resonance imaging to direct biopsies for rare tumours of the foetus, we ensure that you have the most advanced and comprehensive resources at your disposal that are currently available in the medical field with the goal of providing obstetric caregivers and parents the information required to take informed decisions regarding the treatment plans. With a collaborative team of geneticists, paediatric surgeons, perinatologists, and neonatologists, our hospital’s advanced foetal care team channels the technology and talent in a way that is fit to your needs and to the needs of your unborn child.

Apart from the above-mentioned services, our advanced foetal care centre in Indore provides maternal and foetal health services for women who are categorised as having high-risk pregnancies. From preventive counselling and diagnosis to well-thought personalised treatment plans and follow-up, the team delivers the counselling, support and medical care needed at every stage of pregnancy and delivery. Pregnant females are counselled regarding weight issues that tend to occur in pregnancy, hypertension, predisposing conditions giving rise to preterm labour, and other health conditions that hamper normal pregnancy.

If you suspect that there is any issue or chances of complications in your unborn child or foetus, consult the best gynaecologists in Indore at our advanced foetal care centre. Some of the risk factors may include:

  • Congenital heart disease, mental retardation, or any other syndrome.
  • Abnormal quantity or composition of amniotic fluid.
  • Congenital infections like the fifth disease.
  • Suboptimal or abnormal ultrasound reading.
  • Family history of conditions like single gene disorder.
  • If the pregnant female's age is 35 years or more.
  • Medical problems in the pregnant mother can affect the foetus.

Apart from delivering treatment for the above-mentioned disorders, the advanced foetal care team also delivers a complete range of diagnostic services including CT scans, ultrasounds, and MRIs. The ultrasound films that our technicians create are checked by our maternal and foetal medicine specialists, who are experts in the field of care for the pregnant females and their foetuses. Our ultrasound technicians are equipped with huge experience in dealing with foetal ultrasounds. While the majority of ultrasounds are carried out to monitor females with high-risk pregnancies, those are also performed to determine the size of the foetus or estimate the date of pregnancy.

The healthcare providers who offer the above-mentioned services are perinatologists or maternal-foetal specialists who have years of experience in the obstetric field. They are well-prepared to offer consultation or medical care for both the expectant mother and the unborn foetus in a high-risk pregnancy setting. Apart from that, the perinatologist offers information to the patients or their family members and counsels them about their diagnosis and the available treatment options. The maternal-foetal specialists collaborate with the obstetrician or nurse-midwife in providing co-management, consultations, or direct care for a high-risk pregnancy both prior to and post-delivery.
