Maternity Care Overview

“Whether you’re expecting your first child or your fifth, our leading labor and delivery staff provides a secure, nurturing environment and a caring response to your family’s needs. Our comprehensive services and treatment lead more than 4,000 families a year to choose Advocate Christ Medical Center as the place to have their baby.”

“We offer a birthing experience you can trust:”

  • Midwifery care: Our “midwives support a more natural approach to childbirth and typically handle less patients at a time than OB/GYNs. They focus on healthy vaginal births using medication-free pain relief methods and minimal interventions. They can’t perform caesarean sections or surgeries, so a midwife may not be right for you if you’re facing a high-risk pregnancy.”
  • Breastfeeding resources: To ensure your and your newborn’s nursing experience is a success, we offer breastfeeding support before, during and after your stay with us, with support from certified IBCLC lactation consultants.
  • Private labor & delivery suites: Our amenity-filled delivery suites let moms, newborns and families bond with each other in peace, quiet and comfort.
  • Highest-Level NICU: Our level III neonatal intensive care unit offers the highest level of treatment available in Illinois, so moms and babies can rest easy.
  • Dedicated nursing: You will have one nurse, your Baby’s First Friend, dedicated to caring just for you and your baby and providing the personalized instruction or advice you may need.
  • Additional Resources: Advocate Health Care offers a range of resources for moms and babies, including baby pictures and hearing tests.”

“Our birthing center merges high-tech, leading-edge care with comfort for families who are expecting. That’s why so many families choose Advocate Christ Medical Center to deliver their babies.”
