EFFECTIVE MONDAY, APRIL 20, ST. BERNARD HOSPITAL WILL NOT DELIVER BABIES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
We were forced to take this action in order to respond more effectively to the increase in patients who are sick with the COVID-19 coronavirus. Our Women’s Wellness Clinic, located in our Ambulatory Care Center, will continue to treat expectant mothers and provide prenatal care.
We will facilitate a connection to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center for women who need labor and delivery care.
We believe these actions will provide the safest environment for expectant mothers, infants, families and our staff. We greatly appreciate your understanding of our need to take this action, and we thank you for trusting St. Bernard Hospital to care for you and your family.

New Life Begins Here
A healthy life begins with proper prenatal care. St. Bernard Hospital’s team of obstetricians will guide you through each step of your pregnancy, from helping you maintain a proper diet to preparing for delivery. Once your baby is born, we will connect you with a pediatrician to ensure that your child continues to receive the care he or she needs. If your child needs extra medical attention after delivery, our neonatologists are ready to diagnose the issue and properly care for your baby.
To find an obstetrician or gynecologist, check out our list of physicians by specialty.
St. Bernard Hospital has combined state-of-the-art technology with the care and compassion that you expect in an Obstetrics Department to provide a nurturing, welcoming environment for mothers and their newborn child.
Our family-centered delivery rooms are designed for privacy and comfort. Computerized fetal monitors and the HUGS infant security system ensures your child’s well-being.
Before and after childbirth, St. Bernard Hospital offers outstanding support services, including prenatal classes, breastfeeding instruction, and social services for young mothers. Our lactation consultant will educate and emphasize the importance of breastfeeding.
After your delivery, mom and one guest are treated to a celebration meal in her hospital room, where she can select from a special lunch or dinner menu. Prior to discharge new moms are given a car seat for their newborn’s safe journey home.
