The WVU Medicine Children’s Maternal Infant Care Center (MICC) provides high-quality, family-centered maternity care to meet the individual needs of all pregnant women — from routine obstetrical care to treatment of mothers and babies at high risk for complications. Seventy percent of MICC deliveries are classified as high risk.
Our team includes maternal-fetal medicine specialists, midwives, a genetics counselor, and a registered diagnostic medical ultrasonographer. Our perinatal genetic services include targeted ultrasound and genetic amniocentesis supported by our on-site cytogenetics laboratory.
The MICC offers birthing rooms that simulate a normal home environment, with technology equipped to handle any birthing situation. To provide new parents with more peace of mind, babies stay in their mother’s room after delivery. Follow-up care we offer includes an after-birth clinic, baby care videos, a lactation consultation, and a breastfeeding clinic.
