Due to the fetoneonatal pathway it is possible to identify pregnant women with an increased risk of fetal growth restriction or pre-eclampsia in early stages (from 10th week of pregnancy). Women whose pregnancy is considered high-risk receives risk-adapted prenatal treatment as well as certain treatments for their newborn and infant until 1 year of age. The tasks of all involved persons are defined by standard operating procedures (SOP)


By implementing a preventive feto-neonatal pathway, healthcare for pregnant women with high risk of fetal growth restriction (FGR) or pre-eclampsia will be improved and, therefore the occurence of children's health problems may be prevented.The pathway allows healthcare to be structured, ross-sectoral, inter- and multidisciplinary in consideration of medical and psychosocial imensions. The feto-neonatal pathway transfers scientific findings, which already determine international routine care, in the project region into clinical routine care. The anamnestically increased risk for FGR or pre-eclampsia is validated by ultrasound and the identified high-risk pregnancy is attended risk-adapted from birth until the end of the first year of life of the child.As a result, the mothers' pregnancy-related risks (death, premature delivery, traumatic stress disorders) as well as risks for the child (prematurity and associated problems, childhood growth restriction with the risk of metabolic syndrome, developmental neurological problems) are reduced and the sustainability of the interventions is ensured in the long term through improved health competence of the families. The feto-neonatal pathway shows how highly specialised fetoneonatal care of high-risk pregnancies can be ensured while ensuring primary care in a health region, and offers the possibility of being extended to other indications.
