Labor & Childbirth
All of our patients receive compassionate care during labor and delivery from one of our midwives and give birth at Miami Valley Hospital. Women desiring natural child birth or a water birth have the option of delivering in the Family Beginnings Birth Center at Miami Valley Hospital if they have a low-risk pregnancy.
During the six weeks following delivery patients are encouraged to call for any medical problems or breastfeeding issues they may encounter. Patients should call to schedule a physical exam (pelvic exam & STD screening) five to six weeks after delivery. Women who attend their postpartum appointment will receive a gift basket (if available) containing clothes, diapers, blanket and items for both her baby and for herself.
A licensed social worker is available to assist patients in various ways. Social services, individual counseling, and referrals to community resources are provided. Some of the referrals include:
- W.I.C. Food Supplement Program
- Help Me Grow Brighter Futures
- Food pantries
- Good Neighbor House
