If your baby has been diagnosed with a prenatal condition, you probably have a lot of questions: What’s the best path forward? What’s the best timing for treatment? Do I have the best care near me?

It can be hard to find this information because many prenatal diagnoses are rare and unexpected. As one of the most experienced fetal care teams in the country, our Colorado Fetal Care Center providers can answer all your questions. At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we offer second opinions for any diagnosis your baby has received, and we care for virtually any fetal condition.

How to get a second opinion for your child

At our Center, we offer two options for getting a second opinion from our pediatric providers: in-person and virtual.

In-person second opinions

Getting a second opinion from our experts is easy:

  • Your first appointment will be a phone call with our fetal care administration team.
  • First, schedule an initial informational phone call below.
  • At the time you select, a member of our administration team will call you and collect your child’s health information.
  • After this call, our team will choose the best provider to see your child and schedule your in-person appointment.

Virtual second opinions

Our virtual second opinions allow you to get an evaluation from our experts, no matter where you live. Simply fill out our virtual second opinion request form below and a nurse will contact you to gather your child’s health information, walk you through the virtual second opinion process and schedule a virtual consultation with the best specialist for your child. A virtual second opinion costs $750.

Why request a second opinion from the Colorado Fetal Care Center?

A prenatal diagnosis can be unexpected. Most families never think about the possibility until they receive an initial diagnosis. Some diagnoses are rare, and you may hear a troubling outlook. That’s why it’s important to get a second opinion from specialists who care only for families dealing with fetal conditions. You’ll find that at our Colorado Fetal Care Center.

How best to care for your baby may be one of the biggest decisions you make. We have the experience to help it be one of the most informed decisions you make.

We treat more mothers and babies for fetal conditions than most hospitals in the nation. And we have some of the best outcomes (success rates) of any fetal care center in the world.

The rare is common for us. So if you need an expert opinion to help you make a treatment decision for a prenatal diagnosis, find comfort in knowing we do that every day.

What specialists or programs offer second opinions?

Our fetal care specialists can provide a second opinion for any prenatal diagnosis or suspected diagnosis your baby might have. We commonly coordinate with specialists across our hospital to help us care for one family.
