Fetal Outcomes

The Midwest Fetal Care Center (MWFCC), a collaboration between Allina Health and Children’s Minnesota, brings together a multidisciplinary team of highly trained maternal-fetal medicine experts from Allina Health and pediatric and neonatal specialists from Children’s Minnesota. Open since 2008, the MWFCC is a national referral center and regional leader in fetal diagnosis, fetal intervention and comprehensive fetal care for unborn babies with abnormalities.

The center was started to meet the local need and has quickly grown into a national center with world-class outcomes. Between Jan. 1, 2015, and Dec. 21, 2018, MWFCC has evaluated nearly 5,000 fetal cases and performed a total of 160 fetal procedures.
