Your Child's Developing Heart
Every parent hopes their pregnancy will go as planned, without any problems. In most cases, they do. But there are times when even a developing baby needs uniquely specialized care. In these matters of the heart, the prenatal diagnostics team at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, can step in to investigate potential cardiovascular problems. Working closely with your obstetrician or perinatologist alongside AdventHealth for Children's pediatric cardiology team, our specialists can use the latest technological advances to take a close look at a child’s heart while they are still in the womb.
Getting Answers in Advance

Best Possible Outcome
We believe that knowing about a heart defect or other problem prior to delivery can give the family a chance to make informed choices about treatment and feel confident and prepared.
At AdventHealth for Children, our goal throughout is to give the family the most accurate information, supported by the most advanced treatments and therapies available, so your child can enjoy optimal health and wellness, before, during and after delivery.
