How women can personalize their birth experiences

Designed to make your birthing experience uniquely your own, Monogram Maternity offers a wide range of resources.

Designed to make your birthing experience uniquely your own, Monogram Maternity offers a wide range of resources.

As we continue to see health care evolve and change to best fit the needs of our patients, St. Vincent’s is creating a more person-centered model of care: a model where convenience, access and choices all play key roles. There’s no greater example of this shift than St. Vincent’s Health System’s new transformational model for OB care, Monogram Maternity.

As the name implies, St. Vincent’s Monogram Maternity offers expectant moms a birth experience as customized as their own monogram. By celebrating the unique needs of each mom, Monogram Maternity provides one-on-one support to help moms create the birth experience they want. Each mom (and often dad) meets with her very own birth designer (a registered nurse) at St. Vincent’s Birmingham or St. Vincent’s East to design her personalized birth wishes.

Whether it’s choosing how to welcome her new baby into the world or understanding the different birth aides available, or even discussing how big brother fits into the plan, moms learn about the various options available and decide which best fits their individual needs. Moms have the opportunity to ask questions and even test out the birth experience room, so they can feel more comfortable when the big day finally arrives.

But Monogram Maternity doesn’t end there. It’s all about supporting moms throughout the journey. And while we don’t deliver babies at St. Vincent’s One Nineteen, we offer a wide range of services to support our moms. Monogram Maternity moms can stay fit with a free fitness membership to the One Nineteen Fitness Center.

And if moms need some pampering, they can escape for a day at our spa with a 15-percent discount. Not to mention, the wide range of educational classes available across St. Vincent’s Health System, including Coping Skills for Labor and Delivery, Breastfeeding Skills for Success, CPR for Family and Friends, weekly Breastfeeding Support Group (held every Wednesday at 10 a.m.) and Baby Sign Language – all held at St. Vincent’s One Nineteen. We also have several OB/GYNs conveniently located on our campus.
