With training in labor, delivery and postpartum care, our nurses have the expertise to be with you through your entire visit. Expect a familiar face as you deliver your little one.

Our Care Never Stops


We aren’t just with you on the big day. There’s a lot leading up to it: planning, ultrasounds, consultations, tests and education.


Starting with our Nurse Navigator, we will equip you with healthy guidelines and important checkpoints to feel informed and empowered on this momentous path to becoming a mom.

Pregnancy Classes

We offer two pregnancy classes that cover a wide scope of topics—from managing pregnancy discomfort to recognizing and responding to potential complications. You'll be fully prepared for the journey ahead.


Our experienced physicians build relationships based on trust. They will listen, guide and inform you on the months-long journey to delivery.

Labor & Delivery

When the time comes, you want to make sure you’re in good hands. With our experienced and considerate staff, you can expect to receive the care you deserve.

Nurse Satisfaction Scores

Our nurses receive excellent patient satisfaction scores for controlling pain and treating our patients with courtesy and respect.

Experienced Physicians

Our team of providers are passionate about listening to your needs and making your experience as safe and comfortable as possible.

My Birth Plan

We’ll work with you to complete a My Birth Plan, which lets us know everything from lighting to pain management preferences, so your big day is how you envision it.

Recovery & Postpartum Care

When it’s time to recover, it’s time to be with your loved ones as you get acquainted with your newborn. Expect to stay in your dedicated suite and benefit from:

Skin-to-Skin Time

Moments after delivery — including after most C-sections — babies can be on the mother’s chest and covered with a warm blanket. This wondrous time also comes with important health benefits. Skin-to-skin babies stay warmer, calmer and cry less while also having better blood sugar levels. This also encourages nursing.

A “Golden Hour” After Delivery

The time immediately following delivery is precious. We postpone all tests and procedures that aren’t immediately needed, and we turn down the lights. The atmosphere is quiet, private and peaceful — perfect for bonding.

Breastfeeding Support

Our board-certified lactation consultant is available to breastfeeding mothers while they are in the hospital. Plus, all of our nurses are trained to support breastfeeding.

Well-Appointed Birthing & Recovery Suites

After delivery, you’ll stay in the same dedicated suite. This means the same privacy-designed layout, full-sized bathroom and walk-in shower.

And Beyond

Your care doesn’t stop after the car ride home. Lake Regional will be with you on your journey through motherhood. Whether it’s women's health visits or pediatrics for that fast-growing toddler, our care for you keeps going.

Hear from Our Moms

The greatest endorsement of our care comes from those who have already received it. Hear from moms like you and even some of our very own staff who have delivered at Lake Regional.

"I have been blessed to delivery two of my children at Lake Regional. My latest delivery was in the new Family Birth Center. The facility was amazing and very comfortable for myself and my husband. The rooms and the bathrooms are spacious. I loved that we were able to stay in the same room from delivery through discharge. The nursing staff was amazing during a very fast-paced delivery and monitoring to ensure our precious baby was safe. The providers were easy to talk to and very caring. Everyone we encountered was friendly and professional. They were wonderful at providing us support but allowing us the privacy we wanted as well. Thank you again to the whole Lake Regional team for helping to make our deliveries exceptional!" ~ Brittany M., Iberia
