Before Baby Arrives
As an advocate for women and children, we realize every expectant mother has different wants and needs. Be sure to discuss your preferences with your doctor well in advance. Ask about medications, anesthesia, delivery and other options that are available to you.
The staff at St.Catherine Hospital are dedicated to providing personalized care for you and your baby. At your prenatal visit, you should receive a Birth Plan Brochure. Feel free to fill this out and if you have special requests, let this be known to the nursing staff upon admission.
St. Catherine Hospital offers birthing classes for the expectant mother and their family. The classes are taught by specially trained, experienced registered nurses and include a variety of topics, such as: labor and delivery, breastfeeding, comfort measures and medication options, infant care and much more. Our classes will ensure that you and your family are prepared for labor and delivery and welcoming a new little one into your home.
For questions or to learn more about birthing classes contact the Maternal Child Unit.
