Complete prenatal care during pregnancy

Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, it is normal to feel overwhelmed by conflicting advice from well-meaning family members, neighbors and friends. At LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, we offer comprehensive prenatal care to help you learn to trust your instincts and feel confident in becoming a parent. We also provide high-risk pregnancy care for several maternal-fetal conditions.

Additionally, we offer prenatal classes and birth center tours with updated information and advice about pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. You can also set up a private tour through your participating provider.

A personalized labor and delivery experience

Labor and delivery can take time. Our birth center provides unified labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms (LDRPs), so you can stay in the same inviting, spacious room and have a consistent environment during your entire visit.

Our family-friendly LDRPs include private, in-room bathrooms with hydrotherapy for additional maternal comfort. Complimentary meals are served to laboring moms and one guest between 6:30am and 6:30pm.

We also offer you access to the latest obstetric technology and resources, including a maternity team with specialized obstetrician-gynecologists (OB-GYNs), registered nurses, obstetrician technicians, anesthesiologists and dedicated operating rooms nearby for unplanned or emergency cesarean sections.

Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)

When needed, our Level II NICU, also called a special care nursery, provides 24/7 care to newborns who are born a few weeks early or have mild health problems.

Postpartum care

After your baby is born, you receive comprehensive postpartum care and support while you recover and enjoy time with your newborn. We encourage rooming-in (keeping your little one in your room) so you can get to know him or her, but we also have nursery care just steps away when you need some rest.

Our maternity experts offer free support groups that meet regularly in the birthing center classroom. Registration is not required, but if you have questions about an upcoming meeting, call (540) 953-5409.

Breastfeeding services

Our birthing center was the first in the state of Virginia to be recognized as a Baby-Friendly® hospital for meeting the highest standards of infant care in breastfeeding. An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® is available seven days a week to help you and your baby have a successful nursing experience.
