Pregnancy Care and Delivery

Pregnancy and childbirth are some of the most significant moments in a family’s life and especially for a woman. At the Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health, we are honored to celebrate this special time with you. We recognize that each pregnancy is unique. Vanderbilt’s state-of-the-art obstetric care provides a compassionate and personalized approach to the health of you and your baby. We’re there for you every step of the way.

Our caregivers deliver all babies at the Vanderbilt University Hospital. Should any emergency occur during your pregnancy and you choose to go to another medical facility at that time, we will not be able to care for you there. We will, however, communicate with this facility and their obstetricians to make sure you continue to receive good obstetrical care.

For some low risk pregnancies, the Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health offers an additional option for distraction during contractions with our hydrotherapy tub room. The hydrotherapy tub is used to help in delaying or lessening the need for medication during labor. Women have the opportunity to use the tub throughout their labor, and will exit the tub for birth.

We offer a variety of classes for expectant parents and siblings. View a list here.

The Center for Advanced Maternal-Fetal Care is available to help women with high-risk pregnancies.

Pregnancy is a time of great changes in a woman’s physical and mental health. Our caring team of board-certified OB-Gyns, Nurse Midwives, Residents, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses will work closely with you throughout your pregnancy to take care of your needs and discuss any concerns you may have.

Whether you're expecting your first child or you've been mothering little (or big) people for years, you'll find words of wisdom at Wishing Well. It's the blog for Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, written by women at all stages of motherhood. Join the Wishing Well discussion here.
