The Baby Place


Minden Medical Center has been providing services for the unique physical, social and spiritual needs of women for years. The Women’s Services Center provides a complete program of medical, surgical and educational services to accommodate the unique needs of female patients. We take pride in providing exceptional women’s care, close to home.

Expecting Parents

The Baby Place delivers more than 700 babies a year and continues to offer sensitive, personalized health services to each woman, baby, and father. Fathers, siblings and grandparents are invited to participate in welcoming new babies. However, we ask that you choose only two individuals to be with mom in the actual delivery. This is to ensure the safety of mom and baby. Parental education is also available to new parents.

Other benefits include:
  • 24-hour anesthesia coverage 
  • Private labor, delivery and recovery suites
  • Modern Cesarean Section suite
  • Nurses Government certified in perinatal care.
  • Pediatrician of your choice
  • Level 2 Nursery
  • Free Childbirth and Breastfeeding education classes for our patients; please inquire about the next available session
  • Wireless Internet access available to patients and visitors

Expectant parents need not look any further for the perfect place to welcome your newest family member to the world. The Staff of the Women’s Services Center are compassionate and dedicated to providing families with an exceptional birthing experience.

When it’s time for that special arrival, our experienced and highly-skilled staff is waiting to offer you comfort and care. We want to share this special occasion with you and we encourage you to make an appointment to visit our unit, tour our state-of-the-art LDR suites and meet our wonderful staff.
