A Whole New Life

It's the start of a whole new life.

Oh, yes — this little miracle who may change the world is going to start by changing yours! We'll help you get started with your new life to make a healthy and happy transition at home.

Before You Leave

Your postpartum care begins with the knowledgeable guidance of our nurses and staff. We're ready to teach, listen and answer your questions. We'll give you helpful instructions to successfully breastfeed or bottle-feed your newborn. We'll show you proper techniques for holding, diapering and bathing. While you're here, we invite you to tune into the Newborn Channel on your in-room TV. It offers 24-hour-a-day programming with plenty of helpful advice.

Once You're Home

In the first few weeks as a new parent, questions will undoubtedly arise. We'll send you home with materials that include answers to the most commonly asked questions. You'll get helpful information on services and assistance available to you and your baby. We'll include our video demonstrating the techniques of infant and child CPR — something every parent should know.

Welcome to the Family

When you deliver at The Birth Center at Mercy Health Saint Mary's, it may very well be the start of a long and healthy relationship with Mercy Health. We've delivered generations of families. And for generations, they've made us the provider for all of their health care needs. Once you experience our wonderful care, chances are, you'll become our newest addition to the Mercy Health family, too.
