Pregnancy & Birth
Finding out you are pregnant can be an exciting but nerve-wracking time. Our providers are here to help you every step of the way.
Greater Regional offers a variety of options when it comes to obstetric services. Patients may choose from ob-gyn, family medicine, or midwife services for their pregnancy and birth journey.
We provide obstetric care from preconception counseling and infertility services, through delivery, and into the postpartum period.
Our obstetric providers will ensure both mother and baby are safely guided through all phases of pregnancy and childbirth. Whether the baby is delivered vaginally or through a planned or emergency caesarian section, our providers are trained to handle any change that is presented during the natural, but sometimes complex process of childbirth. If a C-section is needed, our Surgery Center is down the hall from the Birthing Center.
We offer prenatal classes, breastfeeding resources and individual teaching to help you and your baby get the best start possible.
Following delivery, we focus on the health of the mother and child, ensuring that both make the transition into routine daily life.
Prenatal & Breastfeeding Classes
Come join our in person class "The Gift of Motherhood," an in depth journey through the last trimester of pregnancy, labor, delivery, postpartum, and breastfeeding. This class includes a birth video and tour of labor and delivery taught by Jill John, Director of OB. The class also includes information on breastfeeding, presented by our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Tricia Williams. The best time to take the class is when you are at 28 weeks or after and you can bring your support person!
Classes are located in the Medical Arts Plaza Conference room. Classes are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Contact Jill John, (641) 782-3669, for more information.
