Maternal Fetal Transport offered by Barnes-Jewish


When referred by a physician, pregnant women requiring specialized transport will have immediate access to the care they need. We’re ready to respond – by ground or by air. The new Maternal Fetal Transport service offers a level of care unavailable through other regional transport programs. Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s Hospitals are teaming up to provide safe, specialized maternal fetal transport.

Every maternal fetal transport will include a three-person team: a Barnes-Jewish high risk obstetrical nurse to care for mom, a Children’s Hospital neonate-trained nurse to care for baby in the event of delivery, and a Children’s Hospital paramedic. Transport is provided by ground or air via one of three mobile intensive care units (MICUs), the KidsFlight 1 and 2 helicopters, and KidsFlight 3, a fixed-wing aircraft dedicated to transporting maternal fetal patients and critically ill newborns and children.
