Mother & Baby
At St Joseph Medical Center we’re known for cozy, family-centered care where over 2,000 babies are delivered each year in a beautiful, hotel-like maternity unit. We’re also known throughout the area for advanced obstetrics services.
For instance, in our Perinatal Center mothers and babies receive close consultation and comprehensive care for high-risk pregnancies – ranging from severe lupus to renal transplants, diabetes, heart disease, and multiple pregnancies.
The department boasts two maternal-fetal medicine specialists and six registered sonographers who conduct 3-D and 4-D ultrasound images in an American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine accredited facility.
A 7,200 square foot Level III B Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, directed by neonatologist Michael Langbaum, M.D., provides state-of-art care for neonates and multiples.
Another unique aspect of St. Joseph’s Family Childbirth Center is the group of board-certified nurse midwives (Women’s Health Associates) who have privileges granted by the medical staff. In addition to their own practice, they provide 24/7 back up and support to obstetricians as needed.
In St. Joseph’s comprehensive Mother and Baby unit the focus is on excellent care, and patient comfort.
