Happy Hour Smoothies

Pasteurized Breast Milk

At some point during your hospitalization, your baby may require additional nutrition to supplement your breast milk. In these cases, we have pasteurized, donated breast milk available for our patients. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agree that exclusive breast milk feeding is best, especially to those born prematurely.

Lactation Consultants

Not only does breastfeeding create an incredible bond between mother and baby, it also provides numerous health benefits for each. Our lactation consultants are registered nurses who are available to offer help and expertise to mothers who have made the choice to breastfeed.


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 nurse practitioners, and registered nurses who specialize in neonatal critical care.

Newborn Photography

The moment your baby arrives is one you will want to hold onto forever. That’s why Shelby Baptist Medical Center has teamed up with a group of professional photographers that will provide you with a free, professional baby portrait session from the comfort of your hospital room. You can choose from a wide variety of amazing portrait packages to share the birth of your baby with family and friends.
