Pregnancy & Newborns
Pregnancy is an exciting time for parents-to-be. You want to know as much as you can about your developing baby and how your actions will affect his health. Use this information to help you make informed decisions from conception through delivery.
|Your Newborn Baby |
Sleeping, eating, crying, cooing—your new arrival will keep you busy. You'll soon figure out his or her patterns and preferences.
From the earliest days of pregnancy through labor and delivery, our patients can count on a sensitive and well-trained staff to answer their questions and share their concerns. Centered on an innovative approach to childbirth, at Trinity Hospital of Augusta, our patients labor and deliver in one spacious room where doctors, nurses and medical equipment come to them. Following delivery and recovery, the mother and baby are transported to the Mother-Baby Suite where they remain together in a safe and secure setting Trinity calls Couplet Care. Family and friends are welcome!

The Special Benefits of Couplet (Mother-Baby) Care
Realizing the importance of mother-baby interaction, Trinity Hospital of Augusta was the first hospital in the area to offer Couplet Care. Couplet Care is our form of Mother-Baby care in which each patient has a Mother-Baby nurse who helps the mother and baby stay together around-the-clock. Our specially trained Mother-Baby nurses provide complete, quality care for both mothers and newborns so that the mother and baby can to begin the mother-baby bonding experience soon after birth. When mom needs a little time to herself, the nurse will care for the baby in our nursery. Either way, each baby receives excellent care from a nurse our patients know and trust – a nurse who's there to answer questions, help the family with basic baby care and give our patients the confidence to care for their babies at home.
Deluxe Mother-Baby Suites
With special accommodations designed for mothers and babies, our Deluxe Mother-Baby Suites feature many special amenities including:
- Larger rooms with a hair dryer, TV/VCR, refrigerator & coffee maker
- A fresh cut rose on your breakfast tray your first morning at Trinity Hospital of Augusta
- A guest meal tray each day for a family member or friend
Our Deluxe Mother-Baby Suites are the perfect complement to our patients’ special deliveries. Three suites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for an additional charge.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Should one of our newest patients require special care, we have a fully-equipped Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We're committed to giving newborns – even the tiniest ones – the tender loving care for which Trinity Hospital of Augusta is well-known.
- Your baby will be cared for by our highly trained nurses and Neonatologists working with the latest neonatal technology.
- Our neonatologists are board-certified in both Pediatrics and Neonatology (a specialty that focuses on the care of high risk newborns), and are available 24 hours a day.
Trinity Hospital of Augusta's Family Focused Childbirth Unit strives to promote family involvement to its fullest. If babies must remain in our care, we want to be sensitive to our mothers’ needs and make the transition as easy as possible for them. Understanding a mother’s need to be close to her baby, we will accommodate such a mother to the best of our ability. We will seek to allow her to stay on the Mother-Baby Suite, based upon bed availability, at no charge, until her baby can go home. This arrangement is just another way we're fulfilling our mission – to extend the work of Christ through healthcare services – for each of our families.
