“In family-centered obstetric care we see birth as a normal, healthy physiologic process. We don’t see it as a medical problem to be managed. We see our patients as part of a family. We take care of the mom, the dad, the baby. And knowing the entire family makes an enormous difference in the way we take care of the pregnancy. Of course there are times when medical interventions are necessary and we are trained to do those things. We can perform C-sections. We do them when they are necessary, not when they are convenient. We have epidurals available. We take care of the laboring mother and offer epidural, not when you reach a specific number, but when you are uncomfortable and you want one. We are very fortunate to be in a place where family-centered maternity care is the norm.” – Lawrence Mathers, MD

Newport Medical Center Birthing Center

When the time comes to give birth it will take place at the newly renovated birthing center at Newport Medical Center. The state of the art center located close to home is the ideal location to have your baby. The birthing suites were created for labor, delivery, and recovery. After birth the baby can stay in the room with mother and family. Suites are designed for the whole family: spa inspired bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and a double sleeper sofa.

The birthing center also features a fully equipped nursery and C-section operating room. Services available include fetal monitoring, lactation counseling, epidural, and nitrous oxide.

“As a mom of three young children—all born at Newport Medical Center—I know that pregnancy, childbirth and parenting are among the most precious moments in life. At Tennova, we want to make sure it’s a time the whole family will remember with joy.”- Megan DeWitt, M.D.
