Who we serve

It doesn’t matter how old you are, how far along you are, if you just had your baby at another hospital, or if you are only planning to get pregnant. Our program is for women who:

  • Live in Cass, Miami, Fulton, Carroll, White, and surrounding counties in north-central Indiana

Things to do during pregnancy:

  • Meet your nurse navigator
  • Schedule regular checkups with your OB/GYN
  • Go over which resources you need and find out what’s available

During your baby’s first year

It’s completely normal to feel a little anxious about what will happen during your baby’s first year.

After you bring your new little one home, we’ll be here for you—whether you had your baby at our Family Birth Center, just moved to the area, or delivered your bundle of joy at another hospital. You aren’t alone on this journey. Let us help you navigate what comes next.

Your health

Your new baby is here, and life is a lot busier now—but even if your new little one is the center of your world, you shouldn’t put yourself at the bottom of your to-do list. Babies need happy and healthy moms. Your body goes through many changes when it heals from childbirth, and this transitional period can be full of stress and anxiety. 

How we can help after delivery:

  • Meet your nurse navigator
  • Get tips for adjusting to life with your baby
  • Learn about managing postpartum depression
  • Get breastfeeding support, including one-on-one education with a lactation consultant
  • Arrange a safe sleep check
  • Test your smoke alarms
  • Get answers to any questions, anytime (call or text your nurse navigator)

Your baby’s health

Give your baby a healthy start to life with regular medical checkups. On each visit during your baby’s first year, their pediatrician will check them from head-to-toe to:

  • Chart their growth
  • Make sure they’re meeting developmental milestones
  • Provide vaccinations to make your child immune to certain diseases
  • Answer questions

Feeding your newborn

Is your baby eating enough? Have trouble getting your newborn to latch? Wondering what you need to know to prepare formula safely? Babies don’t come with instruction manuals. You get a lot of information that doesn’t always give you all the answers you need for taking care of your baby.

Our experts are here to fill in the gaps, provide advice, and answer unique feeding questions when they come up during the different growth stages of your baby’s first year. Call (574) 753-1705 to schedule an appointment. If one of our lactation consultants cannot answer your phone call right away, please leave a voicemail. All messages will be returned as soon as possible, usually within 48 hours.
