Having a Baby at St. Dominic's

Whether you're thinking about having a baby or are already pregnant, one of the many decisions you will be making is where to deliver. At St. Dominic's, every birth is unique and every life is sacred.

As you begin to prepare for your new baby, we are here to support you throughout your pregnancy, delivery and even with newborn care. St. Dominic's understands that your childbirth experience is a physical, emotional and spiritual process. We hope you will come visit with our experienced team of  maternal/newborn educators and nurses. We'll be happy to talk with you, take you on a tour of our beautiful labor, delivery and recovery suites and show you our newborn nursery and postpartum rooms.

Our staff is here to cater to you and your baby. As members of your personal health care team, we are here to assist you in planning a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. To arrange a tour, call one of us today. During your visit, we can enroll you in one of our many childbirth classes and answer any questions you may have. Learn about our breastfeeding support and natural family planning program, as well.
