In-utero (fetal) surgery requires a multidisciplinary team of experts and specialists.  The fetal surgery allows for the fetus to remain inside the mother's womb and is very much like a cesarean section.  An incision is made in the mother's abdomen and uterus, large enough for access to the spinal defect, to allow for the pediatric neurosurgeon to repair the spina bifida defect. After the surgery is complete, the mother's incision is closed up, allowing her to continue the pregnancy.

Learn more about spina bifida and fetal surgery.

Maternal fetal medicine is a subspecialty of obstetrics in which specially trained physicians take care of high-risk pregnancies to ensure a healthy outcome for the mother and the baby.

Learn more about when you should see a perinatologist.

The Baby-Friendly Initiative

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global program that was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in 1991 to encourage and recognize hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.

This initiative follows evidence-based best practices for all moms and babies including encouraging skin-to-skin contact between moms and babies.

The Baby-Friendly designation is given to hospitals who successfully implement the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes.
