We invite you to learn more about our program and how we can care for you and your unborn baby. Please contact us at 401-228-0559 or via e-mail at coordinator@fetal-treatment.org.

Our hospitals are affiliated with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University — a distinction that allows us to provide patients, mothers and families with the world-class care found only in an academic medical center.

Our program combines the expertise of hundreds of specialists to offer the full spectrum of fetal and maternal care in a seamless experience.

Welcome to the Fetal Treatment Program of New England. We are a collaboration of Hasbro Children's Hospital (the pediatric division of Rhode Island Hospital) and Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, two of the region's leaders in pediatric care.

We specialize in the diagnosis of fetal anomalies, and the management and treatment of the unborn child.

Of the almost 10,000 pregnant women who are followed at Women & Infants Hospital each year, our program guides more than 150 with complex fetal anomalies through their individual care needs. We help coordinate appointments and tests and provide additional resources that families might need, such as support groups or information on local lodging.
