Having Your Baby at Shelby

At Shelby Baptist Medical Center, our mission is to provide a compassionate, comfortable birthing experience close to home for the community. Beginning with our prenatal education classes, which you can take online or at the hospital, and continuing with our dedicated birthing suites, everything we do is designed to make sure your big day is everything you dreamed it would be. After you’ve welcomed your new baby, we provide postpartum support for mom and, if necessary, we have a NICU on site to provide care for the newest member of your family.

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. We offer classes for women and their families, including childbirth preparation, breastfeeding preparation, infant CPR and safety, and more. Plus, 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.

High Risk Pregnancy

Even when you’re doing everything you can to ensure a healthy pregnancy, you may encounter unexpected challenges or concerns. If so, you’ll be assured to know that Brookwood Baptist is staffed with people who are especially skilled in treating high-risk obstetric patients, and that you’ll have access to the neonatology and maternal-fetal medicine specialists of Brookwood Baptist Medical Center.
