A regional referral center for increased risk pregnancies, our Perinatal Diagnostic and Treatment Center (PDTC) offers state-of-the-art assessment and treatment services for expectant mothers with pregnancy complications, all in a caring and compassionate environment. 

Led by Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) physician specialists, our highly trained specialty staff includes certified registered nurses, genetic counselors, and registered dieticians who assess and manage high-risk pregnancies. Their skill and dedication help women achieve the very best outcomes for them and their children. 

The PDTC MFM physicians work closely with the neonatologists and other pediatric subspecialists at CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital. We value this partnership and are committed to providing the best care possible to ensure the best outcomes for you and your baby.

 

As a referral service for high-risk pregnancies, our Perinatal Diagnostic Center offers continuing care for minor and severe maternal-fetal conditions alike. An obstetrician will often refer an expectant mother to our center if they see a potential risk or issue with a pregnancy. Reasons for referral include:

  • Multiple gestations (twins, triplets, quadruplets)
  • Fetal anomalies
  • History of fetal or genetic anomalies in a prior pregnancy
  • History of stillbirth
  • History of recurrent pregnancy loss
  • History of preterm birth or preterm labor
  • History of poor obstetrical outcome in a prior pregnancy
  • Cervical incompetence
  • History of cervical surgery
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Diabetes (gestational diabetes, Type I, Type II)
  • Maternal thrombophilias (e.g. antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, Factor V Leiden, prothrombin gene mutation, MTHFR mutation carrier)
  • Lupus
  • Maternal hypertension
  • Maternal cardiac disease
  • Maternal lung disease
  • Maternal thyroid disease
  • History of blood clots

Committed to both baby-care and self-care for mothers, we provide the most advanced diagnostic testing to help determine important information about the health and condition of a baby before birth. Perinatal diagnostic and consultative services at the center include:

  • MFM physician consultations from preconception through delivery
