Learn Everything You Need To Know

The Girod Birth Center provides a comprehensive Maternity Care Coordination program to help customize your birth experience and care for you and your baby. A complete education series covering prenatal to postpartum, including sibling and breastfeeding classes, are available to all of our expectant families.

To further enhance the birthing experience, mom and baby receive “couplet care,” meaning the same nurse takes care of mom and baby throughout the hospital stay. During that time, baby is encouraged to stay with mom as much as possible, so that both may benefit from the special bond they share.

To help new moms and babies maintain a successful, mutually rewarding breastfeeding experience, OB nurses, with special training as lactation consultants, are available for follow-up hospital visits. Patients may call us to arrange for these appointments at their convenience. During these follow-up visits, nurses will answer questions, observe a breastfeeding session in a private, comfortable setting and address any concerns moms may have.

If you’d like to schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions about breastfeeding, just call 541-451-7588.
