High Risk Pregnancy

At the University of Michigan Health System, our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division works together with a team of specialists to manage high-risk pregnancies, optimize fetal well-being, educate and support families and provide hope to the tiniest of patients.

High-risk pregnancy conditions

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Multiple miscarriages
  • Seizures
  • Preterm labor
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis C
  • Lupus
  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • A genetic issue for the baby, such as Down syndrome

The good news is that most high-risk pregnancies result in the birth of a healthy baby to a healthy mother. Through the partnership of Women’s Hospital, Mott Children’s Hospital, and an established Fetal Diagnostics and Treatment Center, we work to get both the family and baby to that happy first meeting.

The Leaders in High-Risk Pregnancy Care, from Preconception to Post-Delivery

We are unique because our Women's and Children's Hospital are under the same roof, allowing us to provide care for high-risk pregnant mothers and their unborn babies, and transition care seamlessly after birth to our Level IV NICU and world-class pediatric subspecialists.

We offer families comprehensive and coordinated care, using a family centered approach.

Additionally, we provide a full range of consultative and diagnostic services, including genetic counseling, preconception counseling, prenatal diagnosis, genetic amniocentesis, chronic villus sampling, ultrasound scanning and all antenatal testing.
