Labor & Delivery

Nothing is more precious than the gift of life, and WCCH considers it an honor to share the beautiful experience of childbirth with expectant mothers and their families. By coupling cutting edge-technology with well-respected OB/GYNs and clinical staff members, our Women’s Center is among the most popular birthing centers in the region.

Pregnancies range from routine to delicate and our staff is fully equipped to handle any childbirth-associated complications. With a Level II NICU and an adult ICU, specialists are on stand-by to provide care for any unexpected complications that may arise following delivery for mom and baby.

Tours of our facility can be scheduled, and are encouraged, prior to delivery. To schedule a tour, please call (337) 528-4706.


BEFORE DELIVERY

The comprehensive program we’ve created provides expectant mothers with the prenatal education, testing, and monitoring needed to ensure the proper health of both her and her newborn.  New mothers choosing to deliver with us will also learn about proper nutrition and work with their obstetrician to develop a birth plan, choose a pediatrician, and get properly prepared for the big day. 

Whole-family support is also offered through several educational offerings designed not only for mothers, but fathers and siblings as well. Classes cover childbirth preparation, infant CPR, having a new baby in the family, parenting, and breastfeeding.  A sibling class and a one day refresher course are offered quarterly based on interest.  


As an added convenience, our hospital offers online childbirth education classes for those with time constraints, schedule conflicts, or who prefer online courses to traditional one-on-one class offerings. Click here to view a demo.
