Interventional fetal therapy
Published on 20 April 2020
The Interventional Fetal Therapy Service provides treatment for a range of conditions that affect unborn babies. It's based in the Ian Donald Fetal Medicine Unit at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
What is interventional fetal therapy?
In rare cases, a baby may be diagnosed with fetal anomalies and infections during pregnancy. Better outcomes are sometimes possible if the baby receives treatment in the womb. The aim is to ensure a successful pregnancy and a well baby at birth.
Most fetal therapies require direct, invasive access to the fetus and placenta. Experts use advanced technical skills and equipment in a setting that minimises the risk of procedure-related problems.
