Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program Campaign

Women's Board Logo, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances FoundationThe CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation Women’s Board’s has chosen the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program as their 2021 fundraising initiative.

There is no more heartbreaking moment for a family than when their unborn child is diagnosed with “complications.” In the past, the only option for women with high-risk pregnancies has been to travel back and forth to Dallas for observation and treatment. This adds stress to an already difficult diagnosis and is impossible for many.

In September of 2019, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic launched the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program which provides comprehensive care for women who are at high risk for complications threatening the health of the mother and/or baby. This program brings together a team of specialists including OB/GYN physicians, Neonatology/NICU, Pediatrics, Geneticists, Special Needs, Respite Care and Hospice of East Texas, who develop a continuum of care plan.

Your gifts will make a difference in the lives of babies and families in the following ways:

  • Funding the acquisition of an essential tool - the General Electric Voluson E10 Ultrasound System
    • This state-of-the-art device has 2D, 3D, and 4D imaging capabilities, to provide patients with a comprehensive fetal ultrasound which helps the MFM team accurately diagnose a wide range of complex prenatal conditions in the highest definition imaging possible at the earliest point in the pregnancy.
  • Supporting increased MFM Program awareness both for health care professionals and parents in our community, especially to an underserved population, meeting the needs of the family from preconception consultation and prenatal diagnosis to treatment, delivery and follow-up care.
