Obstetrics and Prenatal Care at Adena

Whether you’re a first-time mother or a seasoned pro, having a baby is one of life’s greatest adventures. You deserve highly specialized care through every phase of your pregnancy. From preconception and prenatal care to labor and delivery, our board-certified obstetricians are with you every step of the way to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

If your pregnancy is high risk, we work closely with the physicians of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Department at the Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State University to provide guidance and specialized care for you and your baby. That means you have access to nationally recognized, world-class care right here at home. 

Adena delivers the healthiest babies in the region, and we would love to help you welcome your bundle of joy into the world. 

Your Delivery Experience

Our goal has always been to provide you and your growing family the best healthcare and personal service possible. Though we are nationally recognized for our high quality standards of maternity care, our true honor is helping you deliver a happy, healthy baby. Here is what you can expect from your delivery, from the start of labor through your postpartum care:

  • Five homelike suites for labor, delivery and recovery – all in one place. Your suite has a private bathroom, state-of-the-art equipment for you and your newborn, as well as a recliner so your loved one can stay throughout your labor and delivery.
  • Two dedicated surgical suites for cesarean sections. All areas are staffed by the same friendly faces that have taken care of you during your labor.
  • A baby viewing area so new infants can be seen while keeping our moms and babies safe.
  • A postpartum unit to keep you comfortable and connected with family throughout your stay. With free wireless Internet, a fold-out couch and plenty of space for your infant to stay in the room, it’s the perfect place for you to bond as a new family.
  • A Level II Special Care Nursery that’s staffed with certified neonatal nurses and Nationwide Children’s Hospital providers. This area is equipped to provide exceptional care for infants born as early as 32 weeks. The nursery includes bedside monitoring and specialized cribs for premature infants to  provide a warm, healing, low-stress experience. 

Prenatal Screenings

Early prenatal care is your first step towards a successful pregnancy. That includes important screenings for RH compatibility, rubella (German measles), syphilis, hepatitis and HIV, all of which could put your baby at risk. Our prenatal care team can also help you manage chronic conditions, like diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, or high blood pressure. We will also work closely with you to identify any health or lifestyle issues that could complicate your pregnancy.

  • Lowering your chances of having a preterm baby

Licensed social workers and certified lactation providers are also available to offer support.

The program also requires participation in a partial detox program, including monitored Subutex maintenance and random drug screenings.
