Maternity

Indiana University Health offers comprehensive maternity services and compassionate care for both mother and baby. Our highly skilled doctors offer convenient maternity care with locations throughout the state.

At Indiana University Health Tipton Hospital, we provide complete pre- and post-natal services including physician appointments and exams, as well as ultrasounds through Indiana University Health Physicians Women’s Health. Our team of obstetricians, certified nurse midwives, obstetric (OB) hospitalists and nurses at Indiana University Health North Hospital offer you a full range of birthing options and birthing centers that include support for high-risk patients, as well as the latest medical interventions, should the need arise.

As soon as you know you are expecting, you can access prenatal services such as routine checkups, childbirth education classes and tours of our birthing centers. No matter which of our locations you choose to give birth, IU Health maternity services provide a family-centered, personalized experience.

For women who wish to breastfeed, we offer lactation care by registered nurses who are board certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, the gold standard in lactation care. Lactation consultations for inpatient and outpatient visits are available at IU Health North Hospital.

When intensive medical attention is needed for babies born prematurely or with serious conditions, neonatologists from Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health provide care to critically ill babies in one of our neonatal intensive care units.
