Fetal echocardiography is typically performed between 22-24 weeks gestation. Heart defects affect 1/100 to 1/200 babies and the defects can range from mild to life threatening. Fetal echocardiography is performed on all pregnant women with diabetes or heart disease since they have an increased risk of having a baby with a heart condition. Fetal echocardiography can detect 70-80% of the major heart anomalies.
