Healthy Start

Healthy Start
Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center is committed to providing expectant families with all the education needed to promote a healthy life for parents and their babies. During pregnancy, we offer a number of education classes designed to help expecting couples achieve a healthy pregnancy, prepare for labor and delivery, and develop confidence in caring for a newborn. Topics include prenatal exercise, baby care, Lamaze, cesarean birth, and a special sibling class. We also offer Prenatal Massage, which can help alleviate common areas of pain, reduce swelling in the feet and ankles, and decrease fatigue. For more information, call the Presence InfoLine at 877.737.INFO.

Education will continue while you're in the hospital, with staff specially trained in baby care teaching you on a one-to-one basis, and providing encouragement and confidence so you can continue the skills you learn at home. We also provide a number of educational programs on our patient education television channel, which you may view during your stay.

Lactation Consultant
Our certified lactation consultants are available to provide education and support to new moms who choose to breastfeed. Breastfeeding moms can even contact our lactation consultants after they've left the hospital for additional support. Our Breastfeeding Support Group meets monthly at the Medical Center and is a great resource for breast feeding moms. For more information, email PSJMCLactation@PresenceHealth.org.

Family-Centered Experience
We understand the importance of sharing the birth of your child with the ones you love and encourage your support person to participate with you in educational classes and the miracle of birth. We also offer 24-hour visiting privileges for your support person and extended visiting hours for grandparents and siblings of the new baby.To make visits convenient for support persons and family members, we have a dedicated parking lot accessible from Glenwood Avenue, as well as complimentary valet parking from the Family Birthing Suites entrance.

Web Nursery
We invite new moms to announce their baby's arrival on our Web Nursery. It's a free service, and if you choose to participate, you're baby's photo will be taken while you're in the hospital and shared with your family and friends on our website.

Visit the Family Birthing Suites
We invite you to tour the Family Birthing Suites and see for yourself how we provide expert, compassionate care in the comforts of home. To schedule a personal tour or request a video tour on DVD call 877.737.INFO.
