Children's Services

A Place for Children

Even before a baby is born, Willis-Knighton is here to help assure that the mothers-to-be have access to prenatal care from experienced obstetricians and, if needed, maternal/fetal specialists. It all begins by finding an obstetrician who practices at the Willis-Knighton hospital where you prefer to deliver: South, Bossier or Pierremont.

Of course we’re here to guide you all the way through pregnancy and beyond, linking you to quality pediatric care and a wide range of pediatric specialty services. With three locations that offer pediatric care, there’s a Willis-Knighton location near you.

Prenatal Education

During your pregnancy, you’ll want to take advantage of the many educational classes to prepare you for childbirth and beyond. Learn more about our Childbirth services.


Most babies and children don’t need critical care, but when they do, Willis-Knighton South is the place to be. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is unique to our area with private rooms rather than a large open space. This enhances your bonding with your baby.

The pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), also at Willis-Knighton South, offers technology and expertise of pediatric intensivists.
