Fetal Heart Program

The MUSC Fetal Heart Program provides comprehensive care for mothers carrying babies with a confirmed or suspected heart problem. We work closely with a statewide network of obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine experts, pediatric cardiologists and surgeons to ensure the highest quality care throughout pregnancy, during delivery and after birth.

Heart problems are the most common congenital condition affecting newborns. The MUSC Fetal Heart Program provides accurate diagnosis, detailed management recommendations and coordination of care.
