Obstetrics

Just minutes south of Nashville in Franklin, Tenn., Williamson Medical Center has given several generations of babies a great start in life. Our experienced obstetricians and nursing staff are here to give your baby a great start, too. We know how important it is for you to have your baby at a hospital you trust, while also remaining close to family and friends. Located just off I-65 in Williamson County, Williamson Medical Center offers expectant mothers personal, compassionate care.

OB services include:

Family-Centered Care
The LDR (labor, delivery and recovery) rooms offer comfort and safety for mothers and their babies, birthing beds and overnight accommodations for fathers.

Rooming-In
Parents are encouraged to keep baby in the room as much as possible. Rooming-in gives new parents the opportunity to learn how to care for their infant, with the professional assistance of our nursing staff. A nursery nurse also is available to provide rest and comfort to the new mom.

Lactation Services
Lactation services are available to assist mothers who choose to breast-feed. Mothers can receive special instruction on the best ways to hold their babies, correct latching techniques and more.

NICU
With a higher level of nursery expertise, we're prepared for your delivery—whether low- or high-risk.

Neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, specially trained nurses and a neonatal intensive care unit are essential components of our perinatal services. WMC is able to handle high-risk births, such as multiples or births with complications. And with our spacious birthing suites, you will experience the birthing process in a comfortable, private environment.

The NICU allows WMC to care for smaller, sicker infants through additional monitoring and special equipment. A neonatal nurse practitioner is in the unit every weekday and a neonatologist is available for every high-risk birth. In addition, a neonatologist comes to WMC every day when there is an infant in the NICU.

Prenatal Care
Caring for your baby begins long before your baby is born. Early care by an obstetrician can help prevent or identify potential problems. If you think you are pregnant, we encourage you to see a doctor. If you do not have a physician, please call 615.435.5350 or click here for a complete directory of physicians. At WMC, you will receive comprehensive, family-oriented prenatal care from the time you become pregnant until you deliver your baby.
