Congratulations on the news of your pregnancy! The birth of a child is a wonderful and awe-inspiring moment -- a true miracle. When you dream about the baby you are carrying, you likely have great expectations for the life your child will lead.
At Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Fla., we understand that each mom also has unique expectations for the arrival of her baby. We are here to exceed all of your expectations and cheer you through every step of the way, from prenatal care and childbirth education to a safe, personalized hospital stay and support after you've brought your baby home.
Trusting another to care for your baby can be difficult because babies are more than just little adults. They need a specialized level of care that can only be provided by an expert group of doctors and nurses. As the most preferred childbirth center in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, in addition to offering the regional center for high-risk pregnancy, Northwest Florida's only OB Emergency Care Center and the area's only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Sacred Heart Hospital will keep you and your little one in the safest of hands.
Take a Tour
Tours of the Sacred Heart Hospital Maternity and Women's Center will give soon-to-be moms an idea of what to expect during your stay at the hospital, including where to go, where to park, what to bring when you arrive for the delivery of your baby and much more! Partners are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Tours are included as part of childbirth classes and are also offered twice a month. Registration is required for tours and can be done online.
After leaving the hospital, many mothers have questions and concerns regarding breastfeeding. Breastfeeding support is available over the phone through our "Warm Line" – 850-416-8088 – every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Messages left after 5 p.m. will be returned the next morning.
