The New Life Center offers you and your family the highest quality care and the warm, personal birthing experience you deserve. We strive to meet the complete needs of your family. At Unity Health, we recognize your individual needs and desires and have designed our New Life Center to provide you maximum flexibility and safety no matter how you approach birth.
We have taken great care to create a safe, comfortable place for mothers and their families in the New Life Center. Large, comfortable childbirth suites allow most mothers to remain in the same room throughout labor, delivery, and recovery. This eliminates the disturbance of moving from room to room.
The New Life Center is equipped with a state-of-the-art computerized fetal monitoring system. This system allows the nurses to better provide patient-centered care by monitoring all of the laboring patients at one central location. It also allows the physicians to monitor their patients from their offices or even from their homes.
Our nurses are family care specialists. The nurse who helps you learn about your baby often will be the same nurse who cared for you during labor and birth. We think you will find that our nurses’ compassion and respect for you will contribute significantly to your experience.
Unity Health also has a board-certified lactation consultant available to help new moms learn the ins and outs of breastfeeding. In addition to hosting prenatal breastfeeding classes, Marsha Pound, RN, and registered lactation consultant, visits our breastfeeding mothers after delivery. She teaches them about the benefits of breastfeeding and helps them understand the best way to breastfeed their infant. Following discharge, breastfeeding moms are encouraged to contact Marsha with questions or for consultations.
You and your family are offered a wide range of free classes during and after pregnancy. These include prepared childbirth, breastfeeding, sibling class and infant CPR/safety.
We welcome any questions you may have about the New Life Center or our classes. We also invite you to take a tour of our facilities. For more information, please call (501) 380-1260.
The New Life Center delivers miracles every day.
