SLUCare's Department of Pathology provides state-of-the art placental and perinatal pathology autopsy diagnostic services for families who have had a death in utero, perinatal death or pregnancy with an unexpected outcome. Placental cases and perinatal autopsies for fetuses less than 500 gm are evaluated by fellowship-trained perinatal pathologists with extensive experience performing comprehensive autopsy examinations and providing consultation in high-risk, complicated cases. Recognition of genetic-based diseases allows parents to receive proper counseling for subsequent pregnancies.
