Every new mom looks forward to welcoming their newborn into the world and all the “firsts” that follow. Having a baby is a magical time. But taking care of yourself and your baby during pregnancy is just as important as when the infant arrives. That’s why it’s so important to have the right prenatal support, and UW Medicine offers top-notch maternity care.

UW Medicine has been serving Seattle-area families for 75 years, and offers a full spectrum of services for low- and high-risk pregnancies, from prenatal care to labor and delivery. UW Medical Center’s obstetrics & gynecology program is recognized as #23 in the nation and is the only nationally ranked program in Washington. As a pregnant mom, you’re given a care team that will partner with you to plan for the big day with personalized care for you and your baby. Here are just a few reasons you’ll want to turn to UW Medicine:

Pregnancy can be a stressful time and in today’s climate, many people want to stay as close to home as possible. UW Medicine’s Center for Women and Children offers maternity care at multiple locations throughout the Puget Sound region. All of UW Medicine’s birthing facilities have earned Baby-Friendly designation, which is awarded to facilities that uphold the highest standard of infant feeding care.

UW Medicine’s maternity experts and midwives provide safe, personalized pregnancy care so you can have your best birth, your way. You can also access maternity care at home with UW Medicine’s TeleOB program, and their secure video-based appointments provide safe prenatal care for you and your baby.

UW Medicine wants to make sure your family has all the resources it needs for baby’s arrival. That’s why they offer several childbirth and parenting classes, breastfeeding support and genetic counseling. And because UW Medicine believes in supporting moms after they’ve given birth and left the hospital, they also offer a host of postpartum resources and support groups—with parenting classes held virtually via Zoom.

UW Medicine believes that when you take care of you, you take care of baby. With regular check-ins and lifestyle support, UW Medicine helps you maintain good health that benefits your baby too.
