The Family Birth Place

We know preparing for the newest member of your family during the COVID-19 outbreak can be worrisome and emotional, but we want to assure you that we are here for you.

You and your baby’s health and safety are our top priority. We are doing everything we can to support you and your growing family during this time. All of our birthing rooms are undergoing extra sanitization, and we are staying up-to-date with the latest CDC recommendations and procedures. We know how important family is when welcoming a new baby, and we're here to help you every step of the way. West Jefferson Medical Center’s Family Birth Place is your perfect partner, from classes and resources to birth preparation and post-partum care.

If you have any questions regarding your upcoming scheduled visit or hospital delivery, we encourage you to reach out to your provider. When it’s time to go into delivery, you can enter through our Emergency Department or through Guest Services. You can also give us a call at 504.349.6200. Together, we’ll get through this.
