Meet Our Team


I am here for you... Pregnancy can be amazing, but it can also be overwhelming at times. That’s especially true if you learn that your unborn baby may have a medical condition.

Heidi Cope-Haynes, RN, MSN
Fetal Nurse Coordinator


I am here as your fetal nurse coordinator to help navigate you through your appointments and to work with your schedule as much as possible and to help you meet your care team. As you meet your care team at scheduled appointments, there will be a lot of information. Your care team and I hope to help you navigate through this information and help you make the best plan for your pregnancy, delivery, and child’s care after delivery.

As your fetal nurse coordinator, I will arrange your specialists’ appointments and work with your schedule to make them as convenient as possible to avoid multiple visits to the Fetal Center. Helping you get to your appointments is one of my favorite things to do as your fetal nurse coordinator, I want to get to know you and your baby! I do this by meeting you in the lobby and walking with you so you can find your way to appointments easily. And if you would like me to stay with you in appointments I am happy to be available for you, if not that’s okay too. Please know I am available for your questions and scheduling needs to ensure your individualized care.

Sometimes the road may seem bumpy but we will work together to get through it, and I am here for you and your baby as we travel this journey together. I look forward to meeting you.
