The Carmen and John Thain Center for Prenatal Pediatrics

At the Carmen and John Thain Center for Prenatal Pediatrics at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, you can receive all of your care in one convenient location. We'll work with you to schedule your diagnostic tests and consultations all on one day, if you prefer. When you return for additional visits, you'll return to the same familiar location and receive care from the same familiar faces. We remain with you at your side to support you throughout this journey.

  • We have special expertise in treating twin-twin transfusion syndrome — a condition in which a single placenta is shared unequally by a set of identical twins. We use fetoscopic laser technology to treat this disorder between weeks 16 and 26 of the pregnancy to enhance the chance of a healthy birth for both babies. Our hospital is one of only a handful of centers nationally to offer this approach, and the only center in New York City.
  • We work with a team of high-risk pregnancy experts to perform the EXIT procedure. This rare surgical procedure is performed when the baby has a condition such as a neck or facial mass that leads to blockage of the infant’s airway once he or she is born.
  • We have special expertise in fetal MRI, enhancing the early and accurate diagnosis of brain malformations and neck masses. Results of testing can be used to plan the best care for a newborn.
  • We are the only hospital in New York City offering extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), which may be required to help infants born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, lung lesions, or certain types of congenital heart disease.
