Our maternal-fetal transport service can assist women who experience a complication during labor. If their doctors determine the baby needs a Level IIIBC NICU (neonatal intensive care unit), the transport service can transport the baby to Children’s Medical Center Dallas immediately after birth.
While there, UT Southwestern Maternal-Fetal Medicine doctors will coordinate the baby’s treatment and care with a team of neonatologists and pediatric surgeons.
Conditions where the maternal-fetal transport may be necessary include:
Threatened preterm labor
Premature rupture of membranes
Complex surgical deliveries
Maternal medical conditions requiring tertiary medical subspecialist support
Fetal anomalies requiring neonatology and pediatric subspecialty postnatal care.
