Pregnancy

For many women, pregnancy is an exciting time filled with anticipation. At Franciscan Family Birth Centers, we look forward to being there for you and your baby from the very beginning of your pregnancy.

In addition to the care and advice you will receive from your provider, you will also be invited to attend a maternity reception, “Welcome to Our Home,” once you have chosen to have your baby at our facilities.

Throughout your pregnancy, you can participate in childbirth preparation classes on labor, delivery, cesarean births and newborn and postpartum care at any one of our birth centers. You may also find it useful to fill out a personalized birth plan to help you prepare for the big day and address any childbirth concerns.
