Maternity Care

Our physicians and nurses have helped bring healthy and high risk infants into the world for over 35 years. The use of "mother-baby" suites at West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital (WCCH) exemplifies developmentally supportive care. From birth, newborns are placed in the same room as their mothers and fathers so that the new parents can immediately begin to bond with their baby.

Services offered by the WCCH Labor & Delivery Unit include:
  • Newly renovated labor, delivery,  and recovery rooms
  • Level II nursery that can handle newborns experiencing complications associated with premature birth or other complications experienced during birth.
  • ICU is available for mother in the event of birthing complications
  • Complete childbirth education programs
  • Breastfeeding education and breast pump rentals
