Every new beginning should begin with world-class care. After more than 30 years, Women’s & Children’s Hospital remains the leader in helping Acadiana families begin and grow.

Over 40 OB-GYNs on staff backed by in-house hospitalists, 24-hour care from board-certified neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners, 19 pediatric subspecialists, Acadiana’s only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the region’s only pediatric-dedicated Emergency Room and internationally certified lactation consultants offering breastfeeding support.

We understand the specific needs of Mom, Dad and baby.

We’re here for you during your pregnancy. We’re here for your delivery. We’re here as your baby grows. We’re here when you need us most.

Four local families recently returned to Women’s & Children’s Hospital to share their individual stories of how each journey began.
