Our new Sparrow Medical Group Maternal Fetal Medicine practice provides a complete teamwork approach to care for all needs of high-risk pregnant mothers during their journey. Our goals are to support mothers during their pregnancies aiming at the best outcome for both the mother and the baby.

We offer many services to help our expectant parents throughout each pregnancy journey including detailed ultrasound examinations, genetic testing and counseling, and consultation services related to medical conditions that may affect a pregnancy such as diabetes, preeclampsia, or concern for fetal growth, and development. We have the only level III Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) in the region, and parents can feel assured that help is always ready to provide care to the babies born as early as 23 weeks of gestation. The University of Michigan Health at Sparrows Children’s Center has a wide range of Pediatric Subspecialties Clinics available to make sure your child is receiving the best possible care here in Lansing.
