In your 7th month of pregnancy, we encourage you to schedule a pre-delivery consultation with one of our New Life Center nurses. They will give you specific information about your delivery. You can share your own expectations or concerns with the nurse to ensure there are few, if any, surprises during labor and delivery. They can also help with special requests, such as planning for cultural or religious traditions you want to honor in the birthing of your child or having multiple people present for the delivery of your baby.
Your New Life Center nurse will walk you through much of the paperwork prior to your due date, so most signatures and sign-offs are completed when you arrive for the birth of your baby.
During the pre-delivery consultation, your nurse consultant can arrange a meeting with an Avista financial counselor who can answer questions about the cost of your hospital stay, insurance, self-payment plans and financial assistance.
You can request your consult online or contact us.
