The fetal cardiologist must learn to navigate not only the prenatal diagnosis and management of complex congenital heart disease but also the counseling of parents through the acceptance of the diagnosis and through the seemingly-impossible decisions that accompany many of these diagnoses.

Julie Glickstein's research has focused primarily in the field of Pediatric and fetal echocardiography. She has also co- authored 48 peer review articles and case reports, 57 abstracts and co authored 6 book chapters. Her research has been presented at many of the national cardiology meetings.
