Women & Children

Henry Ford Allegiance Health provides care and services for women, children and infants, with an emphasis on better health and wellness at every stage of life. Our family-centered care philosophy insures the needs of the patient and family are the focus of all we do.

Focusing on Women

The Henry Ford Allegiance Women’s Health Center offers mammograms and clinical breast exams conducted by a certified registered nurse within two business days. Additionally, we now offer complete Well Woman Visits.

Educational and fitness classes are provided in the Women’s Health Center’s warm, inviting atmosphere, where spa services are also available for rejuvenation and relaxation.

Specialized, Family-Focused Care

Our Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic provides specialized maternity care for women experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. A special care nursery is available for babies who arrive prematurely or have special needs at birth. The Stork Club is a unique program focused on helping families learn more about pregnancy, as well as how to prepare for childbirth, baby care and postpartum care.

Comfortable Birthing Experience

Providing specialized care in a home-like environment, our state-of-the-art Family Birthing Center has everything for you and your baby. OB Triage is available 24/7 to provide testing, monitoring and treatment for both you and your baby before delivery, if needed.

High-Quality Pediatric Care

We offer compassionate pediatric care to meet the unique needs of your child, from routine to the complex, including a pediatric echocardiogram service. Our pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who are available in the hospital around the clock to provide consistent care while communicating your child’s progress to your family doctor.

Our pediatric unit is designed with children and families in mind, and includes a spacious playroom and space for parents to “room-in” with their hospitalized child.

Commitment to Patient Safety

Our commitment to patient safety is emphasized in the care of women and children, just as it is throughout Henry Ford Allegiance Health. We participate in a specialized patient safety program for hospital birthing units called MoreOB. We are also one of 90 hospitals in the nation to be selected to take part in the Best Fed Beginnings program, a national effort to improve breastfeeding rates.

Drink extra fluids throughout pregnancy to help your body keep up with the increases in your blood volume. It is important to drink at least six to eight glasses of water, fruit juice or milk each day.
