Bringing a child into the world is a profound life experience. At Riverview Health, we provide a soothing and luxurious childbirth environment—staffed by skilled maternity nurses, obstetricians and pediatricians—that’s designed around the needs of expectant mothers.
Our maternity experts ensure all your needs are met with care and efficiency throughout your childbirth experience. By providing an array of pain relief and anesthesia options, your comfort level remains a top priority. Our maternity staff and obstetricians also try to adhere as much as possible to your labor and birthing preferences while ensuring the health of your baby. For this reason, Riverview Health hasn’t had any early elective deliveries since 2013, and our first-time c-section rate is below the national average.
Riverview Health is here to give you peace of mind, even when you’re planning a pregnancy and preparing your body to be healthy for your little one. There are many tests, treatments and general health recommendations specific to women who are trying to conceive that can help ensure a smoother pregnancy. Contact Riverview Health Women’s Services today to schedule a wellness visit and discuss family planning with an experienced Riverview Health OB/GYN physician.
In preparation for your baby’s arrival, Riverview Health offers a Preparation for Childbirth class for expecting mothers and partners. This class, led by a maternity nurse, provides a thorough overview of what to expect during childbirth.
In addition, our Breastfeeding class, instructed by a certified lactation consultant, will help you learn more about the advantages of breastfeeding and how to best meet your infant's nutritional needs.
