Women's and Children's Services Department, Lafayette, LA
Never Miss A Moment.
Lafayette General Medical Center offers experienced nursing staff, physicians and childbirth educators, that many mothers have come to love and trust. We have delivered babies for generations of families. Normal births, Cesarean sections, multiple births and premature deliveries are all handled here. And we are still the only Lafayette hospital to provide intensive care services to mother and baby under one roof, with an adult ICU and a Level III NICU.
Keep in mind, our philosophy is different - we see childbirth as wellness, not illness. Our staff recognizes that every woman is different, and so each childbirth experience will be distinctive and personalized. We believe in keeping your family together, so no special moment is lost.
So if you are interested in the Mother/Baby model of care, where your baby is not just another face in the crowd and you have choices in all aspects of your pregnancy, and labor and delivery, then you’ll feel right at home.
In fact, Women's and Children's Services Department is constructed to feel more like home. From the expanded family waiting area with adjoining break room to more comfortable sleeping couches, our Mother/Baby suites and Labor & Delivery rooms are designed with patients and their families in mind. Our rooms are large, elegant and comfortable, with special amenities like a mini-fridge.
This section will tell you more about our family-centered care, and the special benefits that are unique to Lafayette General. We hope it will also answer any questions you may have about what to expect from pre-admission, childbirth classes, labor, delivery and your stay with us. We encourage you to take a tour, either after a childbirth education class or by appointment call (337) 289-7210
to prepare yourself and your family for the special day.
At LGMC, you’ll never miss a wondrous, miraculous moment of this incredible journey. Learn more in our Birthplace Brochure
