Beautiful Beginnings

Baptist has been delivering babies for almost a hundred years so we've developed a unique program to make your experience as easy and convenient as possible. We encourage you to take full advantage of our "Beautiful Beginnings" program. All you have to do is meet with us sometime between the 15th and 20th week of your pregnancy. During this time we will discuss programs, resources and services we offer as well as take you on a tour of the maternity unit and walk you through every stage of the birthing process. We'll be happy to assist you with your pre-admission paperwork if you need it. To schedule a tour of our facility or to find out more from our maternity coordinators, please call our registration line at 901-226-5764.

We don't just stop in person either. We've tried to think of everything so we hope you will explore the resources on this page to learn more about our maternity services and support classes.
