Pregnancy and Baby

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.

During pregnancy

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.

Labor and delivery

It’s time to meet your baby! Before you get to the hospital, complete the online pre-registration, and we’ll fast-track your check-in.

Do you want an epidural? What about using a birthing ball or soaking tub to ease your labor pain? You have those options here.

After your baby is born

When you choose SCL Health, you get hospitals that have Baby-Friendly designations or follow Baby-Friendly practices.

This means when your little one arrives, we’ll encourage you to bond skin-to-skin, breastfeed and keep your baby with you in the room.

Once you’re home, you’ll have access to lactation consultants if you run into any breastfeeding challenges.
