Maternity Care That Goes Beyond
Newborns affect their mother’s body, mind and spirit, even before conception. An infant’s arrival also leaves a lasting impact on fathers, siblings and other family members. That’s why we’re developing a robust childbirth program with tools and resources to make your childbearing experience safer, more comfortable and more meaningful.
From family planning and prenatal care to delivery and postpartum support, you can count on our resources to support every aspect of your journey.

About Our Level II NICU
Our Birth Center will be staffed by physicians, nurses and other medical professionals — all working together to ensure that every baby is born safely.
When extra medical care is needed, we’re ready with a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) on-site, staffed with compassionate Children’s Mercy providers. This special neonatal care for sick and premature infants (32 weeks or older) is designed to provide additional support for premature babies.
In some cases, more intensive care is needed. Our team may recommend moving a newborn to our AdventHealth Shawnee Mission Level III NICU, which is equipped and staffed to treat newborns who have more advanced illnesses or genetic disorders.
