Why St. Anthony’s
You have many choices when it comes to deciding where to go for childbirth preparation and to deliver your child. At St. Anthony’s
- We have a beautiful Family Birth Center, with 12 labor and delivery rooms and 16 private postpartum rooms that are comfortable and accommodate spouse and family visits.
- We follow a mother/baby nursing care model, where each expectant mom has a dedicated registered nurse that takes care of both mom and newborn from the time they arrive at St. Anthony’s Family Birth Center until they go home.
- We have a Perinatal Center to care for women with high-risk pregnancies.
- Our Special Care Nursery is staffed around the clock with neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners.
- We have an Obstetrics Nurse Navigator, a registered nurse who serves as a friendly, knowledgeable guide for patients undergoing Cesarean section or induction. The nurse navigator can schedule appointments and lab tests and easily connect expectant mothers to the resources they need.
- Onsite lactation consultants provide education and advice on breastfeeding before, during and after delivery.
Our commitment to educating new mothers and fathers includes offering information about safe sleep practices. Because of our ongoing efforts to reduce infant sleep-related deaths, we are a certified Cribs for Kids® Safe Sleep Hospital.
