Sometimes, complications can require you to be in the hospital during your pregnancy. The specialists with Miami Valley Hospital’s Perinatal Intensive Care Unit (PICU) are here to support you with advanced maternity care before, during, and after birth if you have an at-risk or high-risk pregnancy.

The Dayton area’s only high-risk maternity center, our PICU provides 24/7 emergency care for you and your baby through our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program.
