About Us

The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) General Campus is the referral center for tertiary-level perinatal health care for the regions of Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. This means we care for expectant mothers with the highest risk obstetrical and fetal conditions, as well as the smallest of newborns. Working with a network of other hospitals in the Champlain LHIN, we ensure obstetrical care is organized to deliver the full spectrum of obstetrical services across the region to pregnant women with high risk obstetrical and fetal conditions. This means an obstetrical patient could be directed to a particular site in the regional network of hospitals, depending on the nature and severity of her condition or pregnancy complication. For example, a woman delivering twins prematurely at less than 32 weeks of gestation would be transferred to the General Campus, the site of the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The Maternal Fetal Medicine team at the General Campus of TOH provides comprehensive obstetrical services to our high-risk patients through a multidisciplinary approach involving physicians, nurses, and highly specialized allied health professions such as sonographers, social workers, dieticians and perinatal mental health specialists. For multiple pregnancies, the team provides comprehensive care including first trimester diagnosis and aneuploidy screening, non-invasive and invasive genetic screening and diagnosis, detailed anatomy review, diagnosis and management of complex and specialized twin conditions and therapeutic twin procedures.
