Pregnancy can be an exciting—and anxious—nine months. You may wonder, “Am I doing everything I can to prepare for this baby?”
From routine prenatal care to high-risk pregnancies
Chances are you’re doing everything you can to keep you and your little one healthy. Although, most pregnancies and birth experiences go smoothly, if complications come up, our medical team and neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) are equipped to handle even the littlest of patients.
We are delighted to share in the special time of your life. We have all you need to help you become prepared for what most describe as their biggest challenge and reward.
Preparing for pregnancy
When you decide you’re ready to start a family, give your body—and your future baby—a healthy advantage. We will give you a check-up, share tips for preparing for pregnancy and talk to you about potential risk factors.
If you’re unsure about what to expect during pregnancy, labor and delivery, or when you bring baby home, sign up for one of our childbirth or parenting classes and learn about common tests and procedures.
If you’d like to see the Women’s and Newborn Center, join us for a tour at 6 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of every month. You’ll meet our nursing staff and get a glimpse into one of our many private and spacious labor and delivery suites. It’s a good time to bring any questions you may have.
More and more births are scheduled early for non-medical reasons. Experts have learned that this can cause problems for both mom and baby. That’s why we’ve partnered with March of Dimes to spread the word about waiting until 39 weeks of pregnancy to deliver your baby.
If possible, it’s best to stay pregnant for at least 39 weeks. If your pregnancy is healthy, wait for labor to begin on its own.
Breastfeeding is special for so many reasons—the joy of bonding with your baby, the cost savings and the related health benefits. But along with these benefits, some moms run into challenges.
If you have questions or want to schedule an appointment with a certified lactation specialist, call 303-498-3415.
