Sparrow provides the highest level of care for expectant mothers experiencing normal or problem pregnancies.

The OB/GYN Women’s Center provides routine care for pregnant women and new mothers. If there are problems that make a pregnancy high-risk, the Perinatal Center can offer specialized care. The special services available include pre-pregnancy counseling, genetic counseling, amniocentesis, extensive ultrasound, diabetes management and high-risk pregnancy care.

Most births occur without complications, but if hospitalization is necessary in the antepartum period, Sparrow is well known for its Obstetric Services Special Care Unit. Women with high-risk pregnancies are treated according to individualized plans to achieve the best possible outcomes for themselves and their infants.

The specially trained staff at Sparrow’s Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) uses the latest technology to give even the highest risk babies the care they need. The RNICU staff cares for babies experiencing difficulty such as those born prematurely, with birth defects or having trouble breathing.
