Patient services include diabetes screenings and follow-up care, blood pressure screenings and follow-up care, genetic counseling and prenatal screenings for birth defects, ultrasound diagnosis, and pre-conception and pregnancy consultations.
Breastfeeding education is also important to provide newborns with the best nutrients possible. The nursing staff at St. John's Women and Infants Center actively supports breastfeeding women. The center educates their clients and the community regarding the importance of the promotion and encouragement of breastfeeding.

Giving You Hope


Studies have shown that a woman who starts prenatal care in the first trimester has a four times greater chance of having a normal child than a woman who receives no prenatal care. Premature birth continues to be the leading cause of infant mortality.
The center works closely with health care professionals who provide care in hospitals, physician offices, public health departments and early intervention agencies to share the latest information on prenatal and fetal care. Outcome assessment includes annual or biannual hospital site visits by center staff. These visits enable the Perinatal Center and regional health care professionals to evaluate patient outcomes and set goals for improvement.
