Maternal and Children's Services

Main
The Mother and Baby Department is honored with helping thousands of babies start their lives at Parkview Community Hospital. It is an honor we take pride in. We will be here with you every step of the way, starting from your pregnancy, where we offer many free classes to prepare you for your baby’s arrival and assist him/her with his/her first steps. The services we provide are designed to promote a healthy pregnancy and ensure a safe delivery for your new member of the family. Our maternity unit holds the elements of a safe and comfortable environment that makes you feel right at home and contains an experienced team of medical professionals. As a community hospital, we are patient-centered. We provide the individualized attention and care that you and your baby deserve. We are thrilled that we have such an experienced team of medical professionals; many of whom have been with our mother baby unit for more than 15 years.
 
The Mother and Baby Department offers comprehensive services during your pregnancy, including non-stress testing, ultrasound, pre-term labor care, and diabetes care and education. We are capable of handling the most high-risk obstetric cases. Also, we have a level III/community level neonatal intensive care unit.
 
Come celebrate a very special birthday with us – your baby’s!
