Having Your Baby at Brookwood

With hotel-like labor and delivery suites and five-star amenities, Brookwood Baptist Medical Center is dedicated to ensuring your newest arrival will arrive in comfort and style. Of course, care comes first: with anesthesiologists on site 24 hours a day, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, and a Level III NICU, we’re prepared to deliver the utmost care for both mother and baby, before and after labor and delivery. Plus, with prenatal education classes and breastfeeding support, we’re not just helping deliver babies—we’re helping people become parents.

Lactation Center

Not only does breastfeeding create an incredible bond between mother and baby, it also provides numerous health benefits for each. Our award-winning, International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants are available 7 days a week to help mother and baby make this beautiful, vital connection.

Classes and Support

Being a parent, whether it’s your first time or not, is a big, beautiful, challenging job. Our support groups can be of tremendous help and comfort after you’ve been blessed with your newest arrival.


In the event that your newest arrival needs extra attention, the devoted specialists of our NICU are here to deliver the utmost care for your baby. Our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is staffed by board-certified neonatologists, neonatal respiratory therapists, and registered nurses who are certified in infant CPR, drug intervention, and advanced life support. Each NICU room is private with 24/7 visitation and mounted cameras to view baby remotely.
