Baby MacIsaac

After having our daughter diagnosed with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia at 31 weeks, we felt very supported by the Prenatal Pediatrics team. We were calmed and reassured by the clear go-forward plan and options presented by the team. Our daughter was born and cared for in the NICU at MSCHONY and we could not have asked for better care for us or our daughter prior to her birth and during our stay at the hospital.

To call our experience amazing would be an understatement. The overwhelming feeling of comfort that we received from the entire staff was something that we had never experienced before. Even if we lived across the country, there is no doubt, that The Carmen and John Thain Center for Prenatal Pediatrics would be the only place that we would come to for the prenatal care of our future children.

The Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine at Columbia offers the most comprehensive care. Under the direction of Lynn Simpson, M.D., I felt confident that I was receiving best treatment in all aspects of my pregnancy. It was a wonderful experience.

My husband and I could not say enough good things about NY Presbyterian Children’s Hospital. We have had the most pleasant experience. The staff is phenomenal,  starting with the coordinators,  to the receptionists, nurses, and doctors. Everyone we came into contact with made us feel like a top priority. It’s refreshing to know that there are people out there that care about your family’s well being as much as you do.

Our baby girl was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries during our 20 week appointment. Hearing the words “congenital heart defect” and “open heart surgery” is something no parent ever wants to hear, especially first time parents. The recommendation was to immediately transfer our care to the Center for Prenatal Pediatrics at Columbia Presbyterian, and it was the best decision we made for our family! The care and information we received from them was impeccable. Serving as the central point of contact for all of our prenatal & surgical appointments, CPP greatly reduced the stress factor for us so we could focus on what’s most important – our daughter.  Sarah is now a happy and healthy little girl with a bright future ahead of her.  We are forever grateful to all of the doctors and nurses who guided us through this process.

Nothing can prepare you for the words “your baby has a congenital heart defect” but those are the words my husband and I heard at our 20 week sonogram. Since then, we have gone from one doctor to the next. We chose Columbia/Presbyterian hospital as the place we wanted to deliver our baby and for the subsequent surgery. Everyone we spoke to said Columbia/Presbyterian is the place to be. And boy have they been correct. We always say that one should never have to experience this pain and anxiety about their unborn child but if your child has a problem, Columbia/Presbyterian hospital is the place to be. We have been treated with the utmost kindness and love. Each person we have spoken with has clear knowledge of how to help us and is always willing to go that extra mile. Each doctor we met with took his/her time and allowed us all of the time we needed to feel comfortable with what they were saying. We never felt rushed —what we felt was compassion and a determination to make us feel as comfortable as possible. We have been blown away by the doctors and the staff in everything they have done for us and extremely grateful to have them at our side.

When a congenital heart defect like Dextro-Transposition of the Great Arteries is diagnosed, a million questions swirl in your mind. For us, there was only one answer: The Center for Prenatal Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center. A loving and helpful staff guided us through every step of our ordeal. Our son, Zane, is a vibrant and healthy boy today thanks to the efforts of talented individuals who came together to form the amazing team that saved his life. We are Forever in your debt.
