With our newly renovated labor and delivery unit, nurseries and postpartum areas, plus comfortable birthing suites, Walker Baptist Medical Center delivers a world-class birthing experience close to home for our communities in and around Jasper, Walker County and beyond. We also offer prenatal education classes both online and in person, as well as postpartum support for mother and baby. Plus, as part of the Brookwood Baptist Health community of care, you’ll have access to a wide array of specialists, including maternal-fetal medicine, level III NICU’s through sister hospitals, and neonatal transport.
Not only does breastfeeding create an incredible bond between mother and baby, it also provides numerous health benefits for each. Our Lactation Consultants are available 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.
Access to Level III NICU
In the event that your newest arrival needs extra attention, you’ll have access to the Level III NICU at one of our sister hospitals, Brookwood Baptist Medical Center and Princeton Baptist Medical Center. This 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.
