Keep Calm and Have a Baby!

Contributed by Kendal Stephens, MD, FACOG, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

There are approximately four million births annually in the
United States, and we understand that every pregnancy is a very unique and personal experience. Women are now more informed about their health care than ever before, and their desires for safety, service, and choice are driving modern obstetric care. We understand that women and their families want convenient, personal state of the art care and I’m proud to be part of a team who offers women a comfortable, supportive and safe atmosphere close to home.

Pregnancy brings excitement, anticipation and sometimes feelings of uncertainty. Our hope is that you know that when you choose UC Health, you choose the academic difference. Our teams of highly trained clinical providers deliver comprehensive prenatal care coordinated at the Women’s Center bridging outpatient and inpatient experiences.  Routine and complex prenatal care is provided by board certified obstetricians who are committed to addressing your needs. At the Women’s Center, we offer an on-site outpatient laboratory, maternal ultrasound, Diabetes in Pregnancy Resource Center, and consultation with maternal fetal medicine specialists, all in one location. This allows collaborative care unparalleled in efficiency and expertise.

When you’re ready to deliver, rest assured that board certified obstetricians and anesthesiologists are here 24/7 to deliver your baby. We’re equipped with two state-of-the-art operating rooms conveniently located in the Maternity Unit for cesarean sections and tubal ligations, allowing you to promptly and safely receive care. Yet this technology and expertise is not at the expense of your personalized care, as our highly skilled labor, delivery and nursery staff supports you through childbirth, postpartum, and early neonatal care in your inclusive private labor delivery recovery and postpartum room. This allows you and your family to room-in with the infant, learn breastfeeding and newborn care, and prepare for the adventure of parenthood after you leave our hospital.

Lastly, receiving your care through an academic health system allows you to utilize all the ancillary services available at UC Health. This includes women focused comprehensive primary and specialty care and access to the largest group of physician specialists in the Greater Cincinnati area. Our goal is your lifelong care, support, and health education. So as you plan your family, and explore your options, consider West Chester Hospital Maternity Services.
