Pregnancy and Birth

When you are bringing a new life into the world, you want the best experience possible. That’s exactly what you’ll enjoy at each of Avera.

Personalized Maternity Care

Take advantage of Avera’s personalized pregnancy, birthing and post-delivery services. You’ll appreciate the individual attention you receive from our skilled and compassionate doctors and care teams as they work with you to design the maternity plan that meets your goals and preferences.

Should you need high-risk pregnancy care, rely on your Avera specialists in obstetrics (OB/GYN) and maternal-fetal medicine (perinatologists) to monitor you every step of the way.

Pregnancy & Childbirth Information & Classes

Get top-quality prenatal care through Avera providers who also support your reproductive health. Participate in a wide range of childbirth education classes, such as CenteringPregnancy®, and learn more about how to care for your changing body and newborn. Use our online health library to explore a wide range of helpful information about pregnancy and newborns.

Luxurious & Secure Environments to Welcome Baby

When you choose Avera, you and your family can start baby’s life in a luxurious, comfortable environment where you can take advantage of the latest birthing techniques for labor and delivery.

In many Avera locations, you may select a private birthing room that’s spacious enough for your family to join you for this amazing experience. You might also enjoy spa services as you rest, recover and get to know your new little one. And while you and your baby stay with us, you’re protected by our high-tech security systems.

Advanced Technology & Exceptional Care

At Avera, you also benefit from access to advanced technology that supports complex situations, just in case anything arises. The Level IIIC neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Avera Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls holds the highest possible national designation. That means your baby receives exceptional care from our skilled neonatologists, the expert physicians who care for newborns. And if you live elsewhere, Avera’s CareView technology offers remote NICU monitoring.

After Baby Arrives

Rely on Avera to continue supporting you and your baby. Get assistance for breastfeeding and lactation, sign up for the CenteringParenting® program and find the information you need to help you care for your newborn and yourself.
