Guidelines for our patients »
When your baby is on the way, you want to turn to the best
Our obstetricians and network of Washington University specialists are the physicians of Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, both ranked among the nation’s top health care providers. Whether your pregnancy goes as expected or develops complications, our team makes sure you’ll receive the highest quality of care available.
Where we see patients
During your pregnancy, you may schedule prenatal visits at either of our locations in South County or the Central West End. All of our patients deliver at the Women and Infants Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your delivery and invite you to tour the labor and delivery and postpartum areas before the big day arrives. You can talk to your care coordinator about scheduling a tour, or call 314-362-MOMS.
During your pregnancy
Our team-based approach makes scheduling at both locations reliable and assures that a physician you know and trust is available when you go into labor. At every step, your dedicated obstetric care educator will help ensure you’re comfortable, informed and ready for what’s next.
Having your baby
Our obstetricians deliver exclusively at the Women and Infants Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The center includes rooms for labor and delivery as well as C-sections, ample family visiting areas, and comfortable inpatient rooms for overnight stays. The labor and delivery space also connects to an all-private neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital expansion, which houses one of the top-performing neonatology teams in the country.
Both hospitals are ranked nationally by U.S. News & World Report, giving you and your baby immediate access to the best care available when you need it most.
Support for you and your newborn
After your baby arrives, our family-friendly care provides a nurturing and healthy environment that supports bonding with your newborn, whether feeding breastmilk or formula. We are the region’s only Baby-Friendly Hospital, a designation given by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
If you are expecting a high-risk pregnancy or multiple births, our team can refer you to our colleagues in the maternal and fetal medicine practice.
