OB Hospitalist Services

Women's & Children's Hospital has OB Hospitalists in-house 24 hours a day, every day. That means any time of the day or night, any day or night, an experienced OB-GYN is ready to assist with any issues that may arise during your pregnancy, deliver your baby, or assist your OB-GYN with the delivery.

Our hospital was founded to serve the unique healthcare needs of Acadiana’s moms-to-be, newborns, and children. The OB Hospitalist service is just one more way Women's & Children's Hospital continues to provide the premier birth experience for the area’s growing families.
