Obstetrics and Gynecology
Indiana University Health White Memorial Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology concentrates on delivering safe, quality, cost-effective care for mother and baby. In order to optimize the safety and security of a high risk area, the Obstetrics and Gynecology department has restricted access and a Halo Infant Security system in place for the protection of the newborns.
Obstetrics and Gynecology places emphasis on providing cost-effective quality care and education to promote family unity while maintaining physical safety. Prepared childbirth classes are offered to the mother and father or significant other, both in English and Spanish, to prepare them to make educated, informed decisions regarding their care and the care of their newborn. Parents are taught newborn care and parenting skills during their stay so that they may gain confidence in their abilities to care for their newborns at home.
The Obstetrics and Gynecology Director oversees the Women Infant and Children’s (WIC) programs, which safeguard the health of low-income women, infants and children up to age five who are at nutrition risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating and referrals to healthcare.
