When Natasha learned she was at risk of a pre-term delivery, she came all the way from Maryland to get expert care from the leading high-risk obstetricians at DMC Hutzel Women’s Hospital. “The staff is so caring and compassionate,” Natasha said. “They really made a bad situation much better for us.”

Not only did Natasha’s physicians at DMC Women and Infant Services postpone the birth for five weeks, but they were able to give her newborn daughter all the extra attention and care she needed to grow strong. A year down the road, Natasha learned her second pregnancy was also at high-risk of pre-term delivery, and she knew the one place she wanted to be: DMC Hutzel Women’s Hospital.

At DMC Women and Infant Services, we believe parents are an important part of the care team. While we provide expert medical and nursing care, we encourage parents to participate in the basic care and nurturing of their infant. Parental care and nurturing helps to meet the developmental needs of newborns, and some studies suggest it can improve medical outcomes for infants with health issues. We also encourage breast feeding, which offers significant health benefits for newborns, and have lactation consultants on staff to support new mothers who choose to breastfeed.
