  • Birthing aids such as squat bars, peanut balls, mirrors and walk-in showers and jetted labor tubs* (*varies by location)
  • Designated C-section surgical suites in case of emergency

Maternal-Fetal Medicine Expertise

No one wants to hear the words “high-risk pregnancy,” but if these words become a part of your journey, we hope you find comfort knowing that our team of specialists is always prepared to help you. Our Comprehensive Fetal Medicine program is designed to support your pregnancy day by day, week by week, guided by your Care Coordinator and customized care plan.

Your pregnancy may be high-risk if you:

  • Are Older Than 35
  • Have Learned You’re Having Twins (or Triplets!)
  • Have Pre-existing Health Conditions
  • Were High-Risk in Past Pregnancies

If your little one should need extra attention, rest easy knowing there’s an incredible team of pediatric specialists dedicated to them. Our neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) combine state-of-the-art technology, soothing baby-friendly environments and a comprehensive range of specialty services to provide the highest level of care to our tiniest patients. The Level II and Level III NICUs at AdventHealth for Children know what special care is required for babies born prematurely or experiencing complications. 

We offer the largest NICU network in Central Florida with four locations - just in case you need it. Level II NICUs are available at Altamonte Springs, Celebration and Winter Park. Our Level III NICU at Orlando is ranked among the best children's hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

Your body will probably feel different after childbirth, and you’ll need time to regain your strength and flexibility. You may also experience pelvic discomfort, back pain, or incontinence, and wonder if these symptoms are normal. You’re not alone; many women experience these common symptoms after labor and delivery.

Many times, pregnancies and/or childbirth can result in weakness in your pelvic floor. These symptoms are uncomfortable but highly treatable. Your Birth Experience Coordinator can connect you with our Body After Baby program, which includes physical therapists who specialize in pelvic rehabilitation.

If you’re feeling more than the typical pelvic discomfort, we can treat your pain with innovative techniques, such as the latest minimally invasive robotic surgery and single-incision laparoscopy techniques. With fewer incisions, you’ll experience minimal scarring, less pain, and a short recovery time, so you can quickly return to nurturing and bonding with your baby.

Request an Appointment

Once your baby’s here, the real adventure begins. At every turn, our team will be here to offer any help you need, including screening and support for postpartum depression.

We do everything we can to help you become more confident as you embark on the journey of parenthood, including:

  • Baby Bunch: A weekly gathering designed for moms of young babies, from newborn to 12 months old, with helpful discussions on feeding options, infant development, and maternal health.
  • Lactation Consultations: In addition to Baby Bunch, our lactation team is available to provide additional breastfeeding support over the phone or with individual consultations.  
  • Women's Health Navigation: Our women's health navigator is a specially trained, registered nurse whose job is to make life easier for each of our patients through expert clinical assistance and educational, emotional and spiritual support. 

Above all, we want you to know you’re never alone, and that asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Adjusting to life as “Mom” can be challenging. If you’re not feeling quite like yourself and you’re concerned about your mental and spiritual well-being, ask for help, always. We’ll be there to lift you up, and happily connect you with postpartum counselors and screenings. Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, we’ll always be cheering you on and wishing the best for your growing family.
