During pregnancy and following birth, a variety of classes can help parents prepare for labor, and learn to care for and nurture their baby. Expert educators teach courses about breastfeeding, car seat safety and more.
Mom's health continues to be a focus and caregivers pay special attention to her physical and emotional needs. Postpartum depression is not uncommon and many women find they need professional guidance to help them through this time of their life.
When women and their families experience challenges related to pregnancy, birth, prematurity or perinatal loss the Perinatal Family Support Center provides a wide array of services. Skilled clinical staff recognize the profound impact of medically high-risk pregnancies or births, as well as assess the impact of complex issues on the family. Social Workers work hand-in-hand with nurses and physicians to provide patients and families needed assessment, crisis intervention, emotional support and linkage to community resources while promoting family stability and maternal health.
