As a partnership between UCI Health and CHOC, The Fetal Care Center of Southern California brings together experts in maternal-fetal medicine and pediatrics, so both mom and baby are cared for—no matter the diagnosis. We partner with a patient’s obstetrician (OB), perinatologist and delivery hospital for continuity of care.
