Pregnancy and Labor

Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times in your life. But if you’re like most expectant mothers, you have a lot of questions, too. In addition to providing you with the best care in the region’s best hospitals, we’re here to answer any questions you may have throughout your pregnancy and together devise a birthing plan that’s right for you and your family. We also offer classes and support groups for soon-to-be parents and siblings.

Birthing suites

Wellmont hospitals offer a wide range of birthing options, with specially equipped birthing suites for labor, delivery and recovery at the New Life Birthing Center at Bristol Regional Medical Center, the Birthplace at Holston Valley Medical Center, and The Birthing Inn at Lonesome Pine Hospital. These suites allow you and family members to stay in a comfortable environment together throughout the birthing process.

Emergency care

Our obstetricians conduct thousands of successful deliveries each year. Sometimes, however, emergencies do arise—and Wellmont caregivers have the training, skills and equipment to address the situation quickly. If a C-section is necessary, our dedicated surgical teams stand ready at all times. Babies born with life-threatening illnesses have extended care options at the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Holston Valley Medical Center.

Anesthesia options

Bristol Regional Medical Center, Holston Valley Medical Center and Lonesome Pine Hospital all have board-certified anesthesiologists on staff around the clock to administer general, epidural, spinal, or local anesthesia.

Safety, security and privacy

New parents can rest assured that Wellmont is committed to your privacy and safety while you’re in our care, with extraordinary security measures in place to protect you and your baby.
