Congratulations, you are having a baby!
Pregnancy and birth are key events in the life of any family. That is why our providers and team members consider it a privilege to be part of your pregnancy and birth experience. It is also why we strive to provide you with high-quality care in a comfortable, nurturing environment to make your special delivery everything you have imagined it would be.
Your birth, your way
Your range of birth options may vary based on where you will be delivering your bundle of joy. We have 8 Birthplace facilities across the Midlands and Upstate where 1 out of every 4 babies in the state is born.
We offer the highest level of care while honoring your birth plan along the way. If you do not have a birth plan, we encourage you to consider your options and talk about them with your care provider before your delivery. View a sample birth plan.
You’re pregnant. Now what?
Your care team is here to support and educate you throughout your pregnancy and postpartum care. As your body changes throughout your pregnancy experience, each trimester brings new milestones in your baby’s development, changes to your body, and tasks and preparations to undertake.
Here’s what you may expect during each trimester of pregnancy.
