Stephens County Women's Center- Labor & Delivery
New Impressions Maternal Services
Labor & Delivery
Our beautiful suites are comfortable, private rooms with a variety of conveniences for new families. They are decorated in subtle soft colors with plenty of natural sunlight. As part of our rooming-in-philosophy, babies are kept with their mom throughout their hospital stay. However, should you desire extra rest; our staff is available to care for your newborn. The suites also have a sleeper chair for a support person to stay with mom and baby, a glider, as well as private bathrooms with a walk-in-shower. Each room has a small personal refrigerator, cable television, and a combo DVD/VHS player. Our team is made up of obstetricians, certified nurse midwives, pediatricians, anesthesiologists, and specially trained staff nurses.

We welcome visitors! However, due to infection control issues, we must ask that any children who have signs or symptoms of an illness please wait in our lobby.
Labor & Delivery
We all know that giving birth is not easy. Yet there are many ways to manage pain and ease anxiety during labor in order to ensure the best possible birthing experience. At Stephens County Hospital, we encourage you to share your wishes with us so that we can accommodate your birthing plans and choices for a truly special experience.
Breastfeeding is best for your baby, and it's good for your health, too. But it's not always easy, that is why Stephens County Hospital not only promotes breastfeeding but also provides education and support. We have ten Certified Breastfeeding Counselors on staff in New Impressions Maternal Services. One of the most highly effective preventive measures a mother can take to protect the health of her infant is to breastfeed.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Our facility has a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with well trained staff and Pediatricians. Level II means that we are equipped and knowledgeable in the stabilization and care of newborns requiring medical intervention. From stabilizing the extremely premature to caring for infants born with special needs, our specialized nursing staff is there!
Childbirth Education Classes
Having a baby is one of the biggest moments in your life and we will be your guide throughout your pregnancy. As part of this, we offer Childbirth Education Classes that combine prenatal education, prepared childbirth, surgical birth preparation, and infant care while in the hospital. This is not a Lamaze only class. We do, however, prepare you for labor and give you breathing and relaxation techniques.
