Fetal Heart

The Fetal Heart Program at The University of Maryland Medical Center is made up of a healthcare team that provides detailed evaluation, counseling and treatment for fetal heart conditions that may occur during pregnancy. 

Heart problems in a developing baby may involve abnormal formation of the heart (congenital heart disease) or abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Sometimes, genetic disorders or chromosome conditions in the baby can lead to heart problems. Other times, health conditions in a mother, medications and other exposures may cause heart conditions in the baby. In many cases, we do not know why the heart forms abnormally.
