Exceptional Care That Transforms.

Labor & Delivery

At Memorial Hospital, we understand that choosing treatment for yourself and for your growing family is of the utmost concern to you. That’s why our team of obstetrics specialists and physicians are here to provide uniquely-designed care to every member of your family along the way starting with pregnancy, through to labor and delivery.

Memorial’s Laborist Program

Laborist programs have gained recognition from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as a means of enhancing patient safety. These dedicated professionals, who are practicing obstetricians and gynecologists, adhere to a predetermined schedule to provide our pregnant patients with continuous medical coverage 24/7. By doing so, laborists ensure that our expectant mothers receive the highest standard of care during this crucial period. They are prepared to assist with deliveries and address medical emergencies throughout every trimester, recognizing that the timing of deliveries is often unpredictable. If your doctor is unavailable at the time you go into labor, you can trust our team to handle the delivery.

Obstetric Services from Memorial Hospital

Finding an obstetrician you trust is vital for the health and well-being of you and your unborn child. Memorial OBGYNs understand that pregnancy deserves one-of-a-kind care. We can help with the entire process from preconception counseling and pregnancy, as well as through labor, delivery, and postnatal care.

We are here to care for you throughout your pregnancy, every step of the way. From our obstetric emergency room for when the unexpected happens to obstetric hospitalists who provide professional medical care while you’re in the hospital, you’ll always have the best care possible.
