At an initial consultation, the team will meet with the family to explain the condition, discuss treatment options – including medication options for both the mother and the baby – and explain possible outcomes. Meeting with the team early allows the family to absorb the information and make necessary treatment decisions.
Early detection leads to better outcomes, and no matter what treatment decisions you make, you have a partner in the experts at Levine Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Nephrology.
Your OB/GYN or maternal fetal medicine specialist will refer you to a fetal nephrologist if needed. You’re welcome to contact Levine Children’s Specialty Center directly with any questions or concerns: 704-381-8800.
