Pregnancy

It’s an exciting time—preparing for the birth of the tiny person you’ve been carrying and can’t wait to meet. It can also be worrisome, particularly if you’re a first-time parent, and nerve-wracking, particularly if yours is a high-risk pregnancy. Bellin wants to make it wonderful and memorable by offering you information, personal support, expert care and a comfortable environment so you can focus on the impending arrival of the newest member of your family.

Resources

The Kress Birthing Center offers spacious, comfortable, family-focused rooms to meet the specific needs of moms who want the option of undergoing labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care in a soothing, home-like environment. And prenatal classes and events can help you get ready for parenthood well before you get to the birthing stage. We encourage you to get all your classes completed four weeks before your due date, including childbirth education, baby care and breastfeeding. That way, when the big day comes, you’ll be ready and can concentrate on that very special time with your new baby.

We also offer plenty of information for you to read along at home. Look through these documents, and if you still have questions, get in touch with one of our specialists.
