The anticipation around having a new baby can be both exciting and overwhelming. That's why we're proud to offer a Perinatal Nurse Navigator program at North Central Baptist Hospital and St. Luke's Baptist Hospital, our two Level IV NICU facilities, to help families feel more confident and comfortable when the big day arrives.

What is a Nurse Navigator?

Our Nurse Navigators are registered nurses who can answer your hospital-related questions, help you register for your delivery, schedule prenatal and childbirth classes, facilitate Neonatal Intensive Care Unit consultations when necessary and provide you with the latest important information about our labor and delivery units.

Nurse Navigation Services

Nurse Navigators are available to you in the second and third trimesters, during your stay in the hospital, and after your delivery as you transition into parenthood. While in our care, we have experienced consultants available to guide you through the topics of lactation, circumcision, postnatal recovery and answer any questions you may have.

Our Nurse Navigators also help with:

  • Completing pre-registration paperwork and financial estimate processes
  • Signing you up for prenatal and childbirth classes
  • Answering questions about your hospital stay, including what to pack, available services, hospital policies and procedures and more
  • Connecting you with lactation consultants for breastfeeding assistance
  • Having a personal contact available for questions about the hospital and delivery process
