Prenatal Care

Free prenatal classes are offered several times a year. First-time parents are encouraged to attend, but any obstetrics patient is welcome. Topics include mother’s prenatal care, what to expect in labor and delivery, tour of the birthing unit, breastfeeding and caring for the baby.

Critical Care for Baby

Should your baby need critical care after delivery, neonatal intensive care services are provided through St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center in Sioux City. Plus, every member of our OB team and our paramedics are certified in newborn transport and neonatal resuscitation.

Postpartum Care

Our family-centered care includes special attention to the postpartum stage, including guidance on self care and parenting skills. In addition, 24-48 hours after discharge, a special Mommy & Me visit is made to the home to answer your questions or concerns. 

It’s All About You

That’s the Cherokee Regional Medical Center difference.
