“Trust the Experts"
Through the years, Woman’s Hospital has delivered more than 300,000 babies, but we still treat every birth as the unique and special event that it is.
Woman’s Hospital offers a level of experience that will set your mind at ease during pregnancy, labor and delivery. So you can concentrate on enjoying the magic of having your baby, while knowing that our dedicated professionals and state-of-the-art technology are there to help you and baby stay safe and healthy.
Know What To Expect
Bringing a healthy baby into the world is easier, less stressful and more enjoyable when you and your loved ones know what to expect. To better prepare for this most important life event, we highly recommend you take advantage of our extensive childbirth and parent education offerings.
Is It Worth It?
When preparing for birth, all women need to educate themselves what to expect and what will be allowed for their labor and delivery.
If your physician recommends inducing labor, take the time to learn what this really means to your baby and your body. Learn why it’s important to mother and baby’s health to wait until at least 39 weeks of pregnancy to deliver if the mother or child’s health is not in danger.
