Mother and Baby Care

There are few events more joyous than welcoming a new child into the world. Our labor and delivery services and childbirth centers allow your family to take part in the experience in warm surroundings. We do it for nearly 20,000 babies each year, but we focus intently on creating a unique experience for each family. Mercy works closely with moms and families to make it happen.

If you need the additional expertise of specialists during your pregnancy or after your baby is born, it is available for you. Every member of your Mercy care team uses your electronic health record to manage your health, so you’ll receive better-coordinated and more convenient care from people who already understand your needs.

Whether you’re expecting or just planning your family, we’ll be there from the beginning and stay with you as your baby grows. We offer:

  • Infertility and genetic counseling*
  • Birthing services
  • Perinatal care
  • Level III neonatal intensive care unit in St. Louis, the highest level of NICU care available
  • Special technology in many locations to introduce your baby to family members who can’t visit the hospital
