Expecting the Best in Maternity Care
More than 6,700 babies got their first glimpse of life from the security and comfort of a Covenant Health hospital last year. No health system offers more in the way of birthing options, amenities, and safety than Covenant Health hospitals.
Choice of Doctors and Hospitals
Some mothers decide on an obstetrician before planning for their babies. Others choose the hospital first and then choose a qualified physician who delivers at that hospital.
Covenant Health has a comprehensive list of over fifty physicians credentialed to provide care during pregnancy and while in the hospital. Call (865) 541-4500 for a referral or click the Find a Physician link
Your Pregnancy, Your Way
Families come in all shapes and sizes and so do expectations and beliefs about childbirth. Some prefer minimum intervention. Others are comforted that pain relief is available during labor and delivery.
Many like to room-in with their newborn after delivery. Some want their own room while the baby is cared for in the nursery. Both choices are available at many hospitals.
Expecting and the Unexpected
No one expects complications but Covenant Health hospitals plan and prepare for the unexpected with nurses trained in critical newborn care, access to neonatal intensive care services and perinatologists on staff at some hospitals. All maternity units are secured with monitored entries and exits. Babies wear unique bracelets to prevent removal without proper authorization.
Covenant Health maternity suites are spacious, beautifully decorated and designed to maximize comfort and provide immediate access to technology. Covenant Health hospitals have a variety of room options including private suites equipped with bassinets for rooming in and extra comfortable sleeper furniture for a family member.
Some also have cozy post partum rooms for a more intimate stay. In many hospitals rooms come equipped with whirlpool tubs, entertainment units and internet access.
