Mother & Baby Care
from pregnancy to parenthood
Maternity classes and answers to your baby-related questions, from pregnancy to your first days at home with your child.
At Baptist Health, we understand the changing needs of expectant mothers and their newborn babies. That's why our experienced team is here to guide and help you feel better during this exciting time.
We offer a relaxing childbirth experience, with beautiful all-private labor and delivery rooms mixed with a welcoming atmosphere for you and your family. We also are able to evaluate your pregnancy with the Reproductive Imaging Center's maternal/fetal medicine physicians, including a 4D ultrasound. Baptist Health has dedicated anesthiologists around the clock as well as certified lactation consultants available 7 days a week.
Baptist Health Louisville offers a newly expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for babies born prematurely or who need a little help adjusting to their new environment. The nursery is equipped to care for infants who have reached 28 weeks gestation and weigh at least 2.6 pounds. Experienced neonatologists are available 24/7 and the NICU has all-private rooms so parents can care for and bond with their babies.
We are your guide for advice on pregnancy, prenatal and newborn care, and your first days at home.
