The Ottawa Hospital Division of Neonatology currently runs an antenatal consultation clinic every other week, where women carrying fetuses with special needs are seen before delivery. We provide counseling, education and support to couples and formulate postnatal management plans that take into account the multidisciplinary needs of the infant(s).
Physicians wishing to refer an expectant mother may do so by sending a consultation to our office:

Neonatal Follow-up Clinic
The Division of Neonatology is involved in the Neonatal Follow-up Clinic, which comprehensively follows all infants born at less than 1250g and others with risk factors.
Infants are seen at CHEO at 4, 10 and 18 months as well as at 4 years. They are screened for motor, cognitive, visual and hearing impairments, so that early referral to specialty services can occur. The approach is multidisciplinary and is under the leadership of Dr. Thierry Daboval.
Physicians wishing to refer an infant at high risk may do so by faxing a referral to Dr. Daboval at 613-738-4847.
