Also known as: Maternity, Birthing, Maternal Care

Whether you’re a new or experienced parent, you may have a lot of questions about your pregnancy. We are devoted to creating a patient-centered, caring and open environment designed to celebrate your pregnancy and help you find joy while relieving your anxiety.

Providence’s growing system of award-winning and world-class medical centers offer state-of-the-art maternity units that provide top-quality care during your pregnancy, labor and childbirth, and throughout your postpartum period.

We understand that every pregnancy and birth is unique, so we’ll work in partnership with you to create a personalized birthing plan.

Many of our labor and delivery rooms provide a home-like setting while being equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring systems. Working with these advanced birthing technologies, our experienced physicians and skilled nurses help make your delivery joyous and healthy.

During your postnatal care, our obstetricians and nurses will answer your questions and provide the care you and your newborn need as you start your new life together.

If you happen to have a cesarean delivery, many of our locations provide transitional/observational newborn nurseries, where we care for your baby during your immediate post-surgical recovery. If you feel you need to rest after giving birth, your nurse will care for your baby while you recover. Your obstetrics team will also assist in fostering mother-baby bonding (couplet care) with "skin to skin" contact.

Many of our hospitals offer:

  • Prenatal services
  • Personalized birthing plans
  • Thoughtfully designed and comfortable delivery rooms
  • Board-certified pediatric emergency medicine specialists
  • Neonatal intensive care units
  • Perinatologists specialized in high-risk obstetrics
