Comprehensive care for women and babies through all stages of development, including specialized care for mothers with high-risk pregnancies
Healthy babies contribute to thriving communities and at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, the path to good health starts with caring for expectant mothers. The Maternal, Fetal & Neonatal Institute follows a value-based care model that begins from preconception and continues through birth and into the child's early development years. We believe we are on a journey together with families as we strive to provide the leading perinatal and neonatal care in the region and nation through clinical innovation, education and research.
Our team provides seamless and coordinated care for expectant mothers and their babies, eliminating the all-to-common fragmentation of care that occurs beginning with conception and continuing through early childhood. Our experienced team guides women through high-risk pregnancies and provides appropriate follow-up care for their babies. This continuum approach to care addresses the needs of the mother, the baby in utero, through birth and then into the child’s early developmental years.
In the United States each year, 3.9 million babies are born—of them, 1 in 33 will have a birth defect and 10 percent will be born prematurely. A continuum of care approach to care for these newborns gives these babies a higher chance of achieving productive lives and the ability to develop as normal, healthy kids.
