Authorization of Treatment
Grady Health System provides a full range of medical services for women during pregnancy and childbirth, and for infants. With a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers and specialists at our hospital-based clinics and neighborhood health centers, our goal is to help expecting moms achieve a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
Our focus is on creating a family-centered birthing experience. In our labor and delivery suites, moms and their families enjoy privacy in a warm, relaxed environment.
A variety of pain management options are available by request to ensure a more comfortable birthing experience. After delivery, nurses teach moms basic infant care skills such as feeding, bathing and diapering. Lactation consultants provide education and support with breastfeeding to give babies a healthy start.
