Description

Prenatal diagnosis of a lethal anomaly is a monumental moment in a family's life. It requires extensive team counseling and planning about complex neonatal and obstetric medical management. The construct of palliative care with its focus on emotional, spiritual, social, and symptom support can provide a model for caring for these families.
