Children's Hospital Brings Hope to Special Babies and Their Families

If the baby will require immediate critical care upon birth, the family is enrolled in the SDU program.

"The uniqueness of the SDU goes beyond the convenience of having the mother and baby together in a pediatric hospital," said Lori J. Howell, RN, MS, executive director of the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment.
