Diagnostic Testing and Fetal Treatment

For New and Expecting Parents

We provide the information, resources, and guidance you need to confidently navigate this exciting time in your life.

Learn About Our Programs

Our team provides preconception consultations for women who have a history of difficult pregnancies. We provide genetic and diagnostic testing for birth defects and fetal abnormalities, including chorionic villus sampling, nuchal translucency, umbilical cord blood sampling, and first trimester ultrasound testing. Working with our Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Program, we also provide expertise in fetal therapeutic procedures. This includes blood transfusions for babies in the womb affected by anemia, and fetoscopic laser photocoagulation, a minimally invasive procedure used to stop blood transfer between fetuses with twin–twin transfusion syndrome.

Dr. Wendy L. Kinzler is a maternal–fetal medicine specialist at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island.

Care for the Expectant Mother

We care for women who are age 35 and older, who are pregnant with multiples, have experienced preterm labor, or who have a history of recurrent miscarriage. We provide specialized care for  women who have medical conditions that make their pregnancies high risk, such as autoimmune diseases, cardiac disorders, gestational diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, and preeclampsia, and people who need extra monitoring, including people who have received an organ transplant and those with congenital heart disease. NYU Langone is accredited by the Adult Congenital Heart Association as an Adult Congenital Heart Disease Comprehensive Care Center.

Advanced fetal imaging is provided throughout your pregnancy to monitor your baby’s growth and development. We provide the full scope of ultrasound services, including three- and four-dimensional ultrasound testing. Imaging can help in the diagnosis of congenital heart defects, abdominal wall defects, chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome, and open neural tube defects including spina bifida.

Dr. Shilpi S. Mehta-Lee performs ultrasound testing for a pregnant person.

Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists, including Dr. Shilpi S. Mehta-Lee, use advanced fetal imaging to monitor your baby's growth and development.

We also offer first-trimester ultrasound testing and fetal echocardiography starting at as early as 11 weeks gestation. Early imaging may be recommended if your baby is at higher risk for congenital defects due to family history or if prenatal screening tests such as nuchal translucency indicate a risk. Early detection can help parents make important choices about the pregnancy and their baby’s care after birth.

If a heart defect is suspected, consultations with imaging experts from Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone’s Pediatric Congenital Heart Program are available via a secure video consultation from one of our maternal–fetal medicine locations. Early morning and evening appointments are available at some of our locations.
