Their certified nurse-midwives deliver one-on-one care during pregnancy, labor and delivery, including:

  • Woman-centered care
  • 3D & 4D ultrasounds
  • Breastfeeding support

Ascension Seton’s certified nurse-midwives work closely with your primary care doctor, and if additional care is needed during pregnancy or birth, OB-GYNs and other specialists are on-site at Ascension’s Women’s Hospitals & Birthing Centers. Your care team may also include a birth navigator, nurses, lactation consultants, and other maternity specialists. Your entire care team works together to support you as you become a parent for the first time or as you grow your family. Maternity services include advanced care for high-risk pregnancies with access to specialists for mother and baby. This includes specialized care from maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) doctors and onsite NICUs. Highly experienced nurses and care teams in their NICUs, including neonatologists and neonatal nurses are ready to support your family if your baby needs more advanced care. Using a nurse-midwife may not be an option in certain high-risk pregnancies.

☸ Placenta Policy at these Ascension Seton Medical Centers include:

  1. Notify your L&D Nurses of your plans to keep your placenta
  2. Sign the Hospital’s Consent/Release Form
  3. A 72hr hold of the placenta is required (will be kept in their Lab fridge)
  4. Important: if you deliver on a Wednesday or Thursday you will need to make sure that your placenta is kept in their Lab freezer instead of their fridge (the Lab is closed on weekends, therefore, even though your placenta could be released over the weekend there is nobody there to release it until Monday – double check this with your Nurse)
