COVID-19 and pregnancy - an update for our patients
We would like to take this opportunity to update you about your maternity care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and assure you that our dedicated team of expert nurses, physicians and midwives is committed to providing safe and effective care to every patient who walks through our doors.
Labor and delivery hospitals
The experienced pregnancy specialists of our labor and delivery unit are excited to be a part of your birth experience. Our unsurpassed care and spacious facilities provide the ideal surroundings for welcoming your baby. We are also proud to have been awarded the Healthgrades Awards for OB/GYN Excellence and Labor and Delivery Excellence at both our east and west locations.
At both of our facilities, you have access to the latest in healthcare technology, an amazing multidisciplinary care team and features specifically designed for moms and their babies. These maternity services include:
- 24/7 lactation consultant with follow-up lactation support (even after you return home)
- 24/7 neonatologist
- Comfortable, private labor and delivery suites large enough for the whole family
- On-staff doula
Giving birth at our hospitals gives you the option of a delayed bath for your baby. Delaying your baby’s bath can benefit them in many ways — from strengthening the immune system and lowering the risk of infection to keeping blood sugar stabilized.
Our staff encourages skin-to-skin touch between you and your baby. Also called kangaroo care, skin-to-skin contact keeps your baby’s body warm and breathing rate normal. It also lowers your and your partner's stress levels and helps you bond emotionally with your new baby.
Private neonatal intensive care rooms
Some babies need special care after birth, either because they are born prematurely or with a medical condition requiring treatment. We recognize that privacy is important for every family. Our state-of-the-art Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) offers large private rooms for newborns where each parent and family can spend time alone with the baby. One of the rooms even features two beds, for twin births.

From labor and delivery to postpartum care and beyond, our classes will help you prepare for life as a parent.
